Having full root-level access means that you can access and update any kind of file on a selected server, in addition to all system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software which may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to perform any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also make other users. For safety reasons, you are 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 your server. The root-level access attribute offers you full control over your server from any location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you pick throughout the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you will be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages ideal for multi-media apps with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control many different server-side options as well as any site content which you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System which you have selected during the registration process. With the last Control Panel option that you are able to choose on our order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
