Having root-level access to a server signifies that you can view and update any file on it, including essential system files. You may also install software that can change certain settings on your server during the process, so that the installation can be performed only if you are logged in as the root user. The aforementioned has full privileges, i.e. you'll have full control over your machine whenever you want and you can do anything you would like. You can also create other users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, based on what you need them for - daily tasks, other server admins, etc. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you really need it and not for tasks that you can do through other accounts. You may use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console in order to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers
You'll have full root-level access to your dedicated server regardless of what package you select throughout the signup process, as long as the server is provided with cPanel or DirectAdmin, or without website hosting Control Panel at all. In all of these three cases, you'll be able to change any part of the software environment in any way you see fit, which makes our server packages perfect for multi-media applications with specific requirements which can't be covered when you use a shared website hosting account.
