Having root-level access to your server means that you will be able to view and modify any file on it, including essential system files. You may also set up software which can change particular settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You may also generate various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you'll pick throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers will provide you with the opportunity to run both really resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your website content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with limited root access.
