If you have root-level access to a server, this means that you will have full control over it. In other words, you can install any server-side application whatever the changes that it will make to the software environment on your server, and you will be able to both access and change any file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. The connection can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you make a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software which may be needed by a script-driven application that you'd like to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server
regardless of what package you select during the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you will be able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans perfect for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements that cannot be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you use cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of a variety of server-side options and any website content that you create or upload, while when you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you will have to perform 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've 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 is limited.
