Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also set up software which can modify certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over the machine whenever you want and you can do anything you need. You may also generate other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements about the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you may always install a third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen at registration. If you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have limited root access, but you can still do a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
