How can I administrate my vServers?

In order to administrate your vServers please go to the navigation point HOSTING and select the item Your vServers.

vServers menu

Overview

The index page alreday provides many details.

In addition to the name of the vServer (1) - you can assign your own, meaningful names via the symbol - you can see the current status of the vServer (2).

Furthermore, you see the server class and the expiration date (3) as well as the chosen renewal mode (4).

Please note:

The status only provides information about whether a server has been paid or not. This is not an indication of whether the server is configured or if it is running.

The server will only be renewed when we receive the payment in time regardless of the chosen renewal option. Please pay attention to our terms of payment.

Server information

If you click on the name of the vServer you get to the detailled server information. This page is divided into 4 sections:

  • Server information (1): Here you find details about the vServer specifications. At this point the term "Status" actually provides information about the current state of your vServer. In the example below the server has been stopped and waits for a restart.
  • Renewal Option (2): Via the pull-down menu you may change the default setting "Autorenew" to "Expiration" to delete the product.
  • Server Network Information (3): Here you can find the VNC details in addition to the IP address and the MAC ID of your server. These details are required to access your server via your local VNC client.
  • Available System Commands (4): In addition to starting and stopping the server you can select various operating systems for installation.
