Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and customize each file on a particular server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, which has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned things. The root user may also make other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a specific task on the website hosting server. The root-level access function will provide you with full control over your server from any location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you choose during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you're able to change any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, that makes our server plans ideal for multi-media applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage a variety of server-side options and also any web content which you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything using a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System that you have chosen throughout the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option that you can select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
