Having root-level access to your server signifies that you can view and modify any file on it, including important system files. You may also set up software which can modify specific settings on your server during the process, so the installation is possible only if you're signed in as the root user. The latter has full privileges, which means that you will have full control over your machine at any time and you'll be able to do anything you would like. You can also create additional users either with identical rights or with fewer rights, according to what you need them for - everyday tasks, other server administrators, etcetera. To be on the safe side, it's usually recommended to employ the root account only when you actually need it and not for tasks you can do through other accounts. You can use a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console to be able to connect to the server and to manage it at the root level.

The tremendous amount of resources which you will get makes our dedicated plans an excellent choice for any type of content that you would like to have.
