If you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control over it. In other words, you can install any server-side app no matter what the changes that it'll make to the software setting on your server, and you are able to both access and change any file, including system files, and modify any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform all these things and to create other users, which includes users that also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make another user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you need to modify the server or to install software that may be required by a script-driven application that you would like to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Hosting
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server
regardless of what plan you pick during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these 3 cases, you're able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans perfect for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which can't be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options and any website content which you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server with no Control Panel, you will have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your liking, if it is compatible with the Operating System which you've selected throughout the registration process. With the third Control Panel option which you can select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is restricted.
