Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and modify each file on a specific server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by certain scripts and even offline applications to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all the abovementioned things. The root user can also generate other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from any location, given that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll choose during the signup process. The very same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared website hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server has to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings as well as your web content will be controlled through a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
