Having root-level access to a server means that you'll be able to view and update any file on it, which includes crucial system files. You can also install software which can change specific settings on the server during the process, so the installation can be done only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can perform anything you would like. You may also create other users either with similar rights or with fewer rights, depending on what you require them for - day-to-day tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it is generally recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do via other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to control it at the root level.

You may order the server without any web hosting Control Panel and do everything with a console, unless you set up some third-party instrument, or you can order it with cPanel or DirectAdmin and use a web-based graphical interface to manage your web sites and many system settings. In all 3 cases, you will have full control over your machine. The considerable amount of system resources that you'll have makes our dedicated plans a great choice for any kind of content that you would like to have.
