Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and customize any file on a particular server, which includes all of the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps in order to function effectively. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to perform all the abovementioned things. Your root user may also make other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have a separate account for routine tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from any location, as long as you have the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

If you pick the cPanel or the DirectAdmin web hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our packages you'll select throughout the registration process. Exactly the same is valid if you decide not to install a Control Panel at all. All of our servers will provide you with the option to run both very resource-demanding applications that are too heavy for a shared hosting account and apps that have specific requirements as to what the program environment on the website hosting server should be. The latter is something that can't be achieved on a shared machine, since no server-side software can be installed on it. The difference between the aforementioned options is that without having a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, while if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your web content can be controlled through a graphical interface. If you pick Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you'll have a server with restricted root access.
