If you have root-level access to a server, it means that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you're 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 that has full privileges to perform all these things and to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you create another user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software that may be needed by a script-driven app that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements with regard to the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting plan, our servers are the perfect solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and change its settings as well as the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your online content, as well as the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have selected at signup. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you'll have restricted root access, but you'll still be able to perform a lot of things through a Secure Shell console.
