If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can install any server-side app whatever the changes that it'll make to the software setting on the server, and you'll be able to both access and customize any kind of file, which includes system files, and modify various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things and also to create other users, including users who 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 make one more user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software which may be required by a script-driven app that you would like to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we offer features full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment that cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers are the best solution. Without any Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings and the content that you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party tool manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. If you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, but you'll still be able to do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
