If you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you'll be able set up any server-side app whatever the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you will be able to both access and modify any file, which includes system files, and modify any settings. This can be done by connecting to the server as a root user who has full privileges to perform all these things and to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This particular can be established using 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 required by a script-driven application that you would like to run.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting
In case you choose the cPanel or the DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panel, you'll have full root access to your new dedicated server
, regardless of which of our packages you'll choose throughout the registration process. The exact same is valid when you choose not to use a Control Panel at all. Our servers provide you with the chance to run both very resource-demanding apps that are too heavy for a shared web hosting account and apps which have certain requirements as to what the program environment on your website hosting server has to be. The latter is something which cannot be achieved on a shared machine, as no server-side software can be set up 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 system settings and your site content can be controlled via a graphical interface. When you pick Hepsia, which is the last Control Panel option on the order page, you will have a server with restricted root access.
