When you have root-level access to a server, it means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you'll be able to both access and change any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to create other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it is recommended that you create one more user for your everyday work and employ 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 want to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
If you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server
, no matter which of our packages you will pick during the signup process. The very same is valid if you choose not to get a Control Panel at all. All our servers give you the option to run both very resource-demanding applications which are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on the hosting server should be. The latter is something which can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be set up on it. The difference between the aforementioned solutions is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only via a console, whereas if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, the majority of system settings and your website content can be controlled through a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll get a server with limited root access.
