Having root-level access to a server means that you can view and change any file on it, which includes essential system files. You may also set up software that can change certain settings on your server throughout the, so that the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you will be able to do anything you'd like. You may also generate various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to control it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered with no Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by an ordinary shared hosting package, our servers are the optimal solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll be able to access the server and modify its settings as well as the content which you upload using a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will use a graphical interface to manage everything related to your online content, and the majority of server-side settings. Of course, if you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can always set up a third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. When you select the Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you will have restricted root access, however you can still do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
