When you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you will have full control over it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software environment on the server, and you are able to both access and customize any file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user which has full privileges to perform all these things as well as to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you make one more user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software that may be required by a script-driven app that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we supply provides you with full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you would like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software setting that can't be fulfilled by a conventional shared web hosting plan, our servers will be the most suitable solution. Without Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and customize its settings as well as the content that you upload with a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll have a graphical interface to take care of everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. As expected, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you can install some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the Operating System that you've selected at signup. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel on the order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you can still do many different things through a Secure Shell console.
