When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. In other words, you can set up any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you are able to both access and change any kind of file, which includes system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do all these things as well as to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make one more user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software which may be required by some script-driven application that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we provide provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a standard shared website hosting plan, our servers are the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always install some third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've chosen at signup. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, but you'll still be able to perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
