I'm not a backend guy, so please forgive such a simple question. I'm considering a php management service like Cloudways, because I'd like dedicated droplets, but without the manual setup.
However, there is no root access. I will primarily be doing Wordpress sites, so I don't think I need it, but without really being a backend, code writing, web developer, why would one need root access? This service is similar but with root access: RunCloud
Just looking for examples when it might be needed. Don't want to sign up for something i'm limited by, but really have no idea why I would need it.
