Our Cloud Servers (also known as Virtual Machines) can use different Operating Systems and be utilised to run any of your applications. The operation of these is similar to dedicated or virtual servers and in this example you will create a New Machine based on an Ubuntu template.
Step 1. Log into your Cloud Control Panel using your Username and Password
Step 2. Click on the NEW MACHINE sub-section
Note: If this button is not visible please select COMPUTE from the secondary navigation bar.
Step 3. Select the desired specifications:
Step 5. The creation process takes approximately 10 minutes once the dialog box is confirmed. You will notice a "Create Machine" task become visible in the "Current Tasks" area (located bottom left of screen). This will continue until your Virtual Machine has been fully setup and is operational. You can continue with any other tasks until the task has completed.
Once the "Current Task" is completed, you will be presented with your Server password.
