Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and update every file on a particular server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also make various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the website hosting server. The root-level access attribute gives you full control of your server from any location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our plans you will pick during the registration process. The exact same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. All our servers give you the chance to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared hosting account and applications which have specific requirements as to what the program environment on your web hosting server needs to be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your web content can be managed via a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will get a server with restricted root access.
