Having full root-level access means that you can access and change any kind of file on a particular server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software that may be needed by specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, which has full privileges to perform all of the abovementioned things. The root user can also create other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a different account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform some task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature provides you with full control of your server from any existing location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting

When you select the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you will have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll choose during the registration process. The very same is valid when you choose not to install a Control Panel at all. Our servers will give you the possibility to run both really resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a regular shared hosting account and apps that have particular requirements as to what the software environment on the web hosting server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only from a console, while if you acquire cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings and your site content can be managed through a graphical interface. If you choose Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you'll receive a server with restricted root access.
