When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you'll be able to both access and modify any file, including system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things and also to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create a different user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software which may be required by some script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting which can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared website hosting plan, our servers are the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you're 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 take care of everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. As expected, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you've selected at signup. When you pick the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have restricted root access, however you'll still be able to do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
