Having full root-level access signifies that you will be able to access and change each file on a particular server, which includes all the system files, and to change system settings or set up server-side software which may be needed by specific scripts and even offline applications to function properly. A server is accessed at the root level through a root user, which has full privileges to do all of the aforementioned things. Your root user may also generate other users. For security reasons, you're advised to have one more account for everyday tasks and to use the root account only if you actually need to do a task on your website hosting server. The root-level access function will give you full control over your server from any kind of location, provided that you know the user credentials.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers

You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server whatever the plan you pick throughout the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you'll be able to modify any part of the software environment in any way you find fit, which makes our server packages perfect for resource-demanding applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared hosting account. The main difference between these options is that when you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will have a web-based graphical interface to manage numerous server-side options and also any web content that you create or upload, whereas when you order the server with no Control Panel, you'll have to perform everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it is compatible with the Operating System which you have chosen during the sign up process. With the last Control Panel option which you can pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access will be limited.
