Managing your Virtual Private Server

After creating your Resource Pool and your first Virtual Server(s) you can access each individual VPS Management Dashboard by clicking on the Manage button from the Virtual Server list.

Virtual Server Management

On the Server Management page you will get an overall view of your server. Showing the status, resources, used bandwidth, IP address and more.

You will also get a list of recent actions performed on your server.

In the menu on the right will be a list of actions and buttons to additional actions.

Start/Stop/Reboot

When you are in need of starting, stopping or rebooting your Server we highly recommend you perform these actions from the Management Panel for the correct procedures to be performed in the action.

Rebuild Server

When you want to rebuild your server with the same or new Template/OS you can use this action.
This will delete all data currently on the server and rebuild it as a new setup.

Console

For when you need to access your server ( even if you have had your IP blocked by the firewall ) you can do so via our KVM Console.

Edit Virtual Server Resources

To upgrade or downgrade the total available Memory, CPU(s) and IPv4 Address you can use the Edit VM panel.
Here you can also rename the label and change the Root Password.

Firewall Management

Our Cloud based firewall is a great way to offload the firewall from your VPS freeing up server resources.
You can block connections based on IP, Port, Protocol and Interface ( Multiple IPs ).

To allow connections from an IP on a specific Port such as 80 ( http ), or 443 ( https ), you can leave the Source Address field empty and enter 80 into the Destination Port field. Select TCP as the Protocol then click Add Rule. The interface will generally be eth0 unless you are managing multiple IPs.

You can also allow connections on any Port from a specific IP which is a great way to manage the security on your server to only your web development team. Enter the allowed IP into the Source Address field and leave the Destination Port field empty to allow access to all ports. Select TCP as the Protocol then click Add Rule.

By default all IPs and Ports are allowed but you can change this under the Default Firewall Rules and change the Command to DROP.

Once you have saved all your changes to the Firewall you need to click Apply Firewall Rules.

Disk Management

Under Disk Management is where you can edit, add or remove your disks.
You can also create new Snapshots/Backups of your disks and also schedule automatic Snapshots/Backups.

We recommend you always have an off-site backup solution to complement each one of your Virtual Servers.

Snapshots/Backups

Here you can view all current snapshots of your Virtual Server and use them to restore your server to that snapshot state, or use them to build a template for future Virtual Servers you wish to create.
