When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it indicates that you will have full control of it. In other words, you'll be able set up any server-side app irrespective of the changes that it'll make to the software environment on your server, and you can both access and modify any file, including system files, and change various 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 generate other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For safety reasons, it is recommended that you create a separate user for your daily work and employ the root user only when you need to customize the server or to install software that may be needed by some script-driven app that you want to run.

whatever the package you pick during the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no website hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you're able to update any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server plans ideal for multi-media applications with specific requirements that can't be covered when you use a shared web hosting account. The difference between these options is that with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to control various server-side options and also any site content that you generate or upload, while if you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything using a Secure Shell console or to install a Control Panel of your own liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System which you have selected during the registration process. With the final Control Panel option that you'll be able to select on our order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
