Root access in cpanel

Hello to everyone,


I have problem finding how to enable root access in order to enter via ssh to my host.


I have seen a lot of similar questions but most of them have as solution:

Go to my servers  blah blah blah.


There is no my servers section at my account.


What can I do?

Re: Root access in cpanel

Hi there!


The only way you would have root access to the parent server is if you own a VPS or Dedicated Server with root.


If you're on a shared hosting server, you can't get root access. You can, however, access your specific hosting account via SSH. Here are the instructions on how to do that.
