Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update every file on a specific server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline apps to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the aforementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a particular task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control over your server from almost any location, given that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our packages you will choose throughout the registration process. The same is valid when you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on your website hosting server should be. The latter is something that cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
