When you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you'll be able install any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you will be able to both access and customize any kind of file, including system files, and change various settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and to make other users, including users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate user for your everyday work and employ the root user only when you have to customize the server or to install software which may be required by a script-driven application that you would like to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server
no matter which plan you select throughout the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you'll be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server plans perfect for multi-media applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of numerous server-side options and also any website content that you generate or upload, while if you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen throughout the registration process. With the last Control Panel option which you will be able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
