Having root-level access to your server signifies that you'll be able to view and modify any file on it, which includes essential system files. You can also set up software that can modify certain settings on your server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you are signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, i.e. you will have full control over your machine at any time and you can do anything you'd like. You may also create various other users either with the same rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - everyday tasks, other server admins, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it is usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

whatever the package you pick during the signup process, as long as the server is ordered with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or with no hosting Control Panel at all. In each of these 3 cases, you will be able to update any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages perfect for multi-media apps with specific requirements which can't 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 manage a variety of server-side options and also any web content that you generate or upload, whereas when you order the server without a Control Panel, you'll have to do everything through a Secure Shell console or to set up a Control Panel of your liking, provided that it's compatible with the Operating System that you've chosen during the sign up process. With the third Control Panel option which you are able to pick on the order page - Hepsia, the root access is limited.
