When you have root-level access to a server, it indicates that you'll have full control of it. In other words, you can set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you'll be able to both access and modify any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to do the aforementioned things and also to create other users, including users that 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 employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to set up software that may be needed by a script-driven application that you would like to run.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you select throughout the registration process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no web hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you're able to change any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages perfect for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is the fact that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control a variety of server-side options and also any web content that you generate or upload, whereas if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything with a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, if it is compatible with the OS that you have chosen during the registration process. With the third Control Panel option which you are able to pick on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
