If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you can both access and change any file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do all these things and to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by some script-driven application that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the best solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, but you can still perform a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
