Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and modify any kind of file on a selected server, including all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. The root user may also create various other users. For security reasons, you are advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on the website hosting server. The root-level access function will give you full control of your server from any location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what plan you select during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you're able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages suitable for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of various server-side options and also any site content that you generate or upload, while when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you will have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System which you've chosen during the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option which you are able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
