Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and customize every file on a selected server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned tasks. Your root user can also make various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have a different account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control over your server from any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you select throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you will be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans suitable for multi-media apps with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of various server-side options as well as any site content that you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the OS which you've chosen throughout the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option which you're able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
