Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You can also set up software that can modify certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation is possible only if you're logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over the machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You may also generate additional users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, no matter which of our plans you will pick throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid if you decide not to add a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the option to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the software environment on the hosting server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings along with your website content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with limited root access.
