Having root-level access to a server signifies that you will be able to view and change any file on it, including important system files. You may also set up software that can modify certain settings on your server during the process, 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'll have full control over the machine at any time and you can perform anything you need. You can also generate various other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you want them for - day-to-day tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks which can be done via 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 manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you choose during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you will be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server packages ideal for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control a variety of server-side options as well as any web content that you create or upload, while if you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS which you have selected during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option which you will be able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
