Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and update any file on it, including important system files. You can also set up software that can modify certain settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can do anything you would like. You may also generate other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to use the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks which can be done via other accounts. You may 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.

In all of these three cases, you're able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server plans perfect for resource-demanding apps with specific requirements which can't be covered if you use a shared website hosting account. The difference between these options is the fact that when you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll have a web-based graphical interface to control various server-side options and also any site content which you create 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 install a Control Panel of your liking, if it is compatible with the Operating System that you have selected during the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option which you'll be able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be restricted.
