When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and customize any file, including system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and also to create other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven application that you wish to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer gives you full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting plan, our servers are the most suitable solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and update its settings and the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, and most server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always install a third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at registration. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have limited root access, yet you can still do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
