Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and customize any file on a particular server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be required by certain scripts and even offline apps in order to work effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. Your root user can also make other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do some task on the hosting server. The root-level access function will give you full control of your server from any existing location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will select during the registration process. The same is valid when you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared web hosting account and applications that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on the server needs to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your site content can be managed via a graphical interface. When you choose Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
