When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you'll have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you're able to both access and change any file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and to generate other users, including users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by some script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide includes full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements regarding the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the most suitable solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always install a third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have selected at registration. When you choose our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you'll still be able to do lots of things through a Secure Shell console.
