If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on the server, and you will be able to both access and change any kind of file, which includes system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create another user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have 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 Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we offer provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers are the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you can still perform lots of things using a Secure Shell console.
