Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and customize any kind of file on a specific server, including all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications to work appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. Your root user can also create various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have one more account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the server. The root-level access feature gives you full control of your server from any location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you will select throughout the registration process. The same is valid if you decide not to get a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a regular shared website hosting account and applications that have certain requirements as to what the software environment on the website hosting server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, due to the fact that no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you obtain cPanel or DirectAdmin, most system settings as well as your site content will be controlled via a graphical interface. If you select Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
