The VPSs we provide run Linux, which is a relatively bare-bones operating system intended to run server applications for long periods of time and is the literal backbone of the internet as we know it. As a result you will have to install most of the software you intend you run after your VPS is deployed. You’ll be primarily doing this via command line through a protocol known as SSH, or Secure Shell Protocol, which allows you to use an application, such as Putty, to open the Command Line Interface of a Linux machine remotely.
We’ll be going over the details of how we handle the VPS services we provide, some places to start if you aren’t familiar with Linux, and how to use the Panel we provide, which is separate from our normal Game Panel, to control and monitor your VPS Service.
📄️ Log-in Details
After ordering your VPS you’ll receive the default root password for your VPS via the email address associated with your account. This password can be used to log into your VPS via an SSH client such as Putty with the username root and the IP provided next to the title Main IP, or through NoVNC from the VPS Panel using the same login details.
📄️ VPS Panel - The Basics
The VPS Panel is where you’ll manage the Off-VPS tasks such as rebooting or managing the Firewall. It’s located in the client area and is found on the service details page for your VPS Service. We’ll go over what actions you can preform with the VPS panel and details about how specific actions work.
📄️ VPS Bandwidth
Each VPS Service has a limit on how much data can be over it’s network connection transferred in one billing period. This is measured as a total amount of data transferred over the billing period and resets at the beginning of each period and can be viewed in the Resource Usage Tab on your VPS Panel.

📄️ Locating your VPS IP
The IP address of your VPS can be found in multiple places on the VPS Panel. You’ll find a list of all of the locations below.
noVNC is a VNC client that runs on your browser and can be accessed from the VPS Panel. A VNC Client essentially acts as a remote screen to your VPS’s actual console. By using the noVNC console you get direct access to your VPS without having to travel over it’s external network connection. This will help you if you lock yourself out of your VPS’s network or are timing out when you connect because your VPS is using all of it’s network capacity.
