If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app regardless of the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you're able to both access and change any file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things and also to generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software which may be needed by some script-driven app that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our packages you'll choose throughout the registration process. The very same is valid if you decide not to use a Control Panel at all. All of our servers provide you with the option to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and apps which have certain requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server needs to be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings along with your website content can be controlled through a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
