Making your first Keynode Order

The first step in using Keynode as your VPS Provider is to select your total resources.

Selecting your Resources

On the Keynode start page: Start
You can select the total resources you want in your desired location. This will be called a Resource Pool, and can be used to create any number of Cloud SSD Virtual Private Servers.

For any VPS you will need a minimum of:

  • 1 CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • 1GB SSD Storage for Swap Disk and we recommend 10GB for the Boot Disk.( 11GB in total )

If you require a IPv6 address please send a request after you have created your Resource Pool.

The Resource Pool is a group of resources you can pull from to build your VPS(s). You can select your total resources to create a single VPS or more.

Shapshot and NAS Storage

Snapshots

Snapshot Storage is a great way to create a snapshot of your VPS at anytime. You can then use it to create additional VPS's using it as a template to clone.
You can use our automating snapshots dashboard to schedule an automatic snapshot to be generated on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. You can then use these as templates and/or backups.
We highly recommend you have an additional backup solution and don't rely on only Snapshots.

We provide 50GB of free snapshot storage with any new Resource Pool which can be upgrade on your initial order or at anytime after.

NAS

Our NAS units are Synology Enterprise NAS Arrays, running 10 Drives in RAID 6. It is a great solution for storing large files, images, archives and also for a solid onsite backup solution. Available at all locations and connected to your VPS via a private 1Gbps link.

We have a number of available locations from which you can select from, to have your new Resource Pool:

Checkout

Once you have your new Resource Pool in your cart you can begin the checkout process.
During the Checkout you will need to enter your billing and account information.
If you are adding the new resources to an existing account you will have the option to login.

We currently accept the payment methods: PayPal, PoliPayments, Visa, Mastercard and Amex.

You may need to verify your identity during the final checkout process. This involves a phone call being made to your entered phone number. This phone call will be made instantly as it is automated, and will include a pin number you need to enter into the checkout form.

New Resource Pools require manual activation. This is to help prevent fraudulent orders, and generally takes between 1 to 6 hours.
