The available options within this control panel are:

  1. Change Password – You can fill in the desired password or choose to generate one. We recommend using the Generate Password option and setting a strong password for your server. That will be your server’s root password and should be as strong as possible.
  2. Stop VM – This option shuts down the server. Once the server has stopped, a new option, “Start VM,” will be available to power on the server.
  3. Pause VM – This feature is similar to a physical computer’s hibernation/sleep functionality. When the VPS is paused, any data in the RAM memory will be loaded back there when the VPS is started.
  4. Soft/Hard Reboot – The hard reboot is equivalent to pulling the power plug off a physical server, plugging it back in, and rebooting it. In contrast, a soft reboot is a reboot command sent to the operating system. We always recommend using a soft reboot.
  5. Console – This creates an encrypted connection to the operating system used by your VPS. It is not an SSH connection, although the console has a ‘command line interface’ similar to that used by a Linux-based operating system.
