Having full root-level access signifies that you'll be able to access and change each file on a specific server, including all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. The root user can also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you are advised to have a separate account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your hosting server. The root-level access function provides you with full control of your server from any location, provided that you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply provides you with full root-level access, when the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements about the server software setting which cannot be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting package, our servers are the most suitable solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you will be able to access the server and update its settings and the content which you upload through a console, whereas with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you'll use a graphical interface to control everything related to your online content, as well as most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server without a Control Panel, you may always install some third-party software tool manually, as long as it supports the OS that you have selected at signup. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel on your order page, you'll have limited root access, yet you'll still be able to perform a number of things through a Secure Shell console.
