When you have root-level access to a hosting server, this means that you'll have full control over it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you're able to both access and customize any kind of file, including system files, and modify various settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and to create other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established through a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it's recommended that you make a separate user for your everyday work and use the root user only when you have to customize the server or to set up software that may be required by a script-driven application that you wish to run.
Full Root-level Access in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS servers
from our company, you will have full root-level access in 3 cases - if the server features no hosting Control Panel at all, or in case you select cPanel or DirectAdmin during the order process. In the first case, you will be able to modify any part of the system through a Secure Shell console, whereas in the second, you will still be able to use SSH to connect and to make changes, yet you will also have a graphical interface at your disposal to control your web content and the majority of the system settings. The root access makes our virtual server packages an excellent choice if you need to run any software which you are unable to install in a regular shared web hosting account. With the last Control Panel option - Hepsia, you'll be able to connect by way of SSH and to manage the content on your server, however, the root access rights will be more restricted.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you'd like to install and run heavy, resource-demanding applications and they have special requirements with regard to the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared website hosting package, our servers will be the perfect solution.

As expected, when you get a dedicated server devoid of Control Panel, you may always install a third-party tool manually, as long as it supports the Operating System that you have chosen at signup. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from your order page, you'll have restricted root access, yet you will still be able to do many different things using a Secure Shell console.
