Q. What does Root Access to the server mean ?
Ans. Root Access is an administrator level log-on for Dedicated Servers, Cloud Servers, eNlight Cloud VMs & VPS Hosting. Having root access to the server gives you the ability to take full control of your server. You can then use it for almost anything you wish to including hosting multiple websites, third party software/applications, game servers etc. You can also maintain it as per your preferences.
Please note that not all eUKhost Hosting Services come with full root access. We provide full root access to clients only on VPS Hosting, Cloud Servers, eNlight Cloud and Dedicated Servers.
Even if a client opts for a fully managed server, he/she will be given full administrator rights to his server to have total control of the server and the content hosted on it.
How to use Root Access:
* Linux-based Servers: You have to establish an SSH connection to your server using “root” as a username, the root password, and the IP address assigned to your VPS/Cloud/Dedicated Server. These login details will be forwarded to you in the Welcome Email after your server is setup. You can use any SSH Client Software (Putty, Secure CRT, etc.) to establish the connection.
* Windows-based Servers: You have to establish a remote desktop connection using “Administrator” as a username, the administrative password, and the IP address assigned to your VPS/Cloud/Dedicated Server. These login details will be forwarded to you in the Welcome Email after your server is setup. You can use the Remote Desktop Connection manager provided by Microsoft.
