Having full root-level access means that you can access and update any kind of file on a specific server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user may also generate various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on your website hosting server. The root-level access feature will provide you with full control of your server from any location, given that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll pick during the signup process. The same is valid if you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers will give you the opportunity to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and apps which have particular requirements as to what the program environment on your website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that 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 solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your website content can be controlled through a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will get a server with limited root access.
