Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, including important system files. You may also set up software which can modify certain settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to perform anything you'd like. You can also create other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will choose throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid when you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All our servers will provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on the server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your site content will be controlled via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
