Having full root-level access signifies that you can access and change every file on a selected server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by certain scripts and even offline applications to function appropriately. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to perform all of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also create other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on the server. The root-level access feature gives you full control over your server from any kind of location, provided that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the plan you choose throughout the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you are able to change any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server plans ideal for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is that using cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to control many different server-side options as well as any site content which you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you'll have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen throughout the sign up process. With the final Control Panel option that you will be able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
