Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, which includes important system files. You can also set up software which can modify particular settings on the server during the process, so that the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine at any time and you will be able to do anything you would like. You may also make various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server
regardless of what plan you select during the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you are able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans perfect for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of various server-side options and also any site content that you generate or upload, while when you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it's compatible with the Operating System that you've selected throughout the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option which you can pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
