If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side app whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you can both access and customize any file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to do the aforementioned things as well as to generate other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you create a different user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to set up software which may be required by some script-driven application that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we provide comes with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you want to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have special requirements about the server software environment which cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared website hosting plan, our servers are the perfect solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you are able to access the server and change its settings and the content which you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you've chosen at signup. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to do quite a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
