Having root-level access to your server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, including important system files. You may also set up software that can update specific settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over the machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you want. You can also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, according to what you want them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done via other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we supply comes with full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a standard shared hosting package, our servers will be the right solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings as well as the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. Needless to say, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can set up some third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have chosen at signup. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you'll still be able to do quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
