This page will show you how to create an additional cloud server through the portal.  When you first started your account, the server you selected is created automatically.  This tutorial shows how you can add an additional server.

How to Create a New Cloud Server

After logging into, you should see a screen similar to the following below. To create a server, click the add server button.

anet-Getting Started with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS - LEMP

Adding a Server

On the initial “Add a Server” page, you will see a few options. The first of which is name.

Server Name

Server Name

Here you would enter the server name you wish the server to have. This will be reflected in the hostname as well. Then we have location.

Add Server - Location

Add Server – Location

This is where you would select the location for your server to be in. Next up is Type. On the first page, Operation Systems, we have just plain OS and their versions we offer.

Add Server - Type 1

Add Server – Type 1


You simply select one and move to the next step. If you would like one of our One-Click-Apps, you would go to Applications.


Add Server – Type 2

Here you can select LAMP, WordPress, Node.js, Docker, cPanel, or LEMP. When you select one, it does change the icon to the OS it will be installed to. This overwrites any OS you may have chosen on the Operation Systems page. Please note that cPanel does come at an extra cost found on our cloud server pricing page. Then we go to the next step, Plan.


Add Server – Plan

The plans do change depending on the OS you have chosen. All available plans will be provided as well as the specs and their pricing. Choose the plan that suits your needs and then continue to the last step.


Add Server – End

Here you have the option to enable backups for your server. Make your choice and then select “Create Server.”

Once you have clicked on the “Create Server” button, you will be redirected to the ‘Cloud Severs Administration Interface’. It will take a few moments for your server to build. After this, the server will be listed as ‘PROVISIONED’, and you will be able to access it via RDP, SSH, or VNC using the credentials highlighted at the top of the page.
