Having full root-level access means that you will be able to access and customize each file on a specific server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be necessary for specific scripts and even offline apps to function efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level via a root user, who has full privileges to do all the abovementioned things. The root user may also make various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have a different account for daily tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to perform a particular task on the hosting server. The root-level access feature offers you full control over your server from any kind of location, as long as you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

When you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server, regardless of which of our plans you'll select throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid if you choose not to add a Control Panel at all. All our servers provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a standard shared website hosting account and applications which have certain requirements as to what the software environment on the 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 abovementioned alternatives is that without a Control Panel, server management can be done only through a console, whereas if you get cPanel or DirectAdmin, most of the system settings along with your web content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you select Hepsia, that is the last Control Panel option on the registration page, you will receive a server with limited root access.
