Having root-level access to your server means that you can view and change any file on it, including important system files. You can also install software which can change certain settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over the machine at any time and you can do anything you want. You may also generate other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you want them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to use the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks that you can do using other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect with the server and to manage it at the root level.
Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you get one of the Linux dedicated web hosting that we provide, you'll have full root-level access and you will be able to do anything that you are unable to do using a shared website hosting account - to change the server-side PHP settings, to install frameworks or media streaming software, etcetera. You can order the server without hosting Control Panel and do everything from a console, unless you install a third-party tool, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to take care of your websites and many system settings. In all three cases, you will have full control over your server. The huge amount of resources that you'll receive makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any type of content that you want to have. The servers which are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel are simpler to control, still the root access to such a server is limited.
