If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you can both access and modify any kind of file, which includes system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things as well as to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a different user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software that may be required by some script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer features full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment that can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the optimal solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload using a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have selected at signup. If you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, however you'll still be able to do quite a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
