Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and modify each file on a particular server, which includes all the 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 work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned things. Your root user can also generate various other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have another account for day-to-day tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on the hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from any location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the plan you select during the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these three cases, you're able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, that makes our server plans suitable for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is that when you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of a variety of server-side options and also any site content that 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 set up a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the OS that you've selected throughout the registration process. With the last Control Panel option that you're able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
