If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side app regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on the server, and you will be able to both access and update any kind of file, including system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to do all these things and to make other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established using a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create another user for your everyday 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 application that you'd like to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server no matter which plan you pick throughout the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you can modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server packages perfect for multi-media applications with specific requirements that can't be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to take care of many different server-side options as well as any site content which you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it's compatible with the Operating System which you have chosen throughout the registration process. With the last Control Panel option that you're able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
