Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software that can change certain settings on the server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you are logged in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to perform anything you would like. You can also make various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that can be done using other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply includes full root-level access, if the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software setting that cannot be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting package, our servers are the right solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you can access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, as well as most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always set up a third-party instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you select our Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you will have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to do a number of things using a Secure Shell console.
