Having full root-level access means that you can access and change every file on a specific server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for certain scripts and even offline apps to work properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned tasks. The root user may also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have another account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on your website hosting server. The root-level access function provides you with full control over your server from any location, given that you have the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the package you pick throughout the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you will be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans ideal for multi-media applications with specific requirements that cannot be covered if you use a shared hosting account. The main 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 and also any web content which you create or upload, whereas when you order the server without a Control Panel, you will have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected during the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option that you will be able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
