Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify any kind of file on a selected server, in addition to all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control over your server from almost any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you pick during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you will be able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans perfect for multi-media apps with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control various server-side options as well as any website content that you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System which you have chosen during the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option which you can pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
