Setting up your VPS

To set up your VPS, log into your Simplyhosting.com portal with the email address you used to create your account and the password you set.

Once logged in, you will see your dashboard:

Here you see your server status along with the amount of services you have with us.

Tip: If you can’t see your server, check your payment has gone through. Most servers are set up within 30 mins unless you’ve asked for something complex. When the server set up is complete you will receive a release email.

If you want to see the full specification, you can just click on the Server ID.

This is also where you can reinstall the OS, upgrade or add services.
