Having root-level access to your server signifies that you will be able to view and update any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You may also install software which can change certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you'd like. You may also create other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you require them for - daily tasks, other server administrators, 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 via other accounts. You can 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 Hosting
When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our packages you'll select during the registration process. Exactly the same is valid when you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the option to run both very resource-demanding apps which are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and apps which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on your website hosting server should be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, because no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your website content will be controlled through a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
