Having full root-level access means that you'll be able to access and update any kind of file on a specific server, in addition to all the system files, and to change system settings or install server-side software that may be required by specific scripts and even offline applications in order to work efficiently. A server is accessed at the root level with a root user, who has full privileges to do any of the abovementioned tasks. Your root user may also generate various other users. For safety reasons, you're advised to have another account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a specific task on your website hosting server. The root-level access attribute will give you full control of your server from any kind of location, given that you know the user credentials.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You will have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the plan you choose during the registration process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no 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 see fit, which makes our server plans suitable for multi-media applications with specific requirements which cannot be covered if you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to take care of many different server-side options and any website content which you generate or upload, while if you order the server devoid of Control Panel, you will have to perform everything with a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, if it's compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen throughout the registration process. With the third Control Panel option which you'll be able to choose on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
