To view details of a specific virtual server:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Virtual Servers menu.
  2. Click the label of the virtual server you're interested in.
  3. The screen that appears loads the VS properties, notes,  activity log and tools for managing your VS.

VS Properties

VS properties page gives general overview of the VS details:

  • Template this VS is built on
  • Power status & On/Off/Reboot buttons.

Clicking the OFF button performs graceful shutdown and then powers off the virtual server after the timeout set in Configuration settings.
  • Hostname
  • Compute resource. Click the compute resource name to see its details
  • Location group. Click the location to view the details of the location group with which the VS is associated.
  • Login credentials
  • Owner. Click the owner name to see its details.
  • VIP status (on/off). Click the icon to change the status.
  • Price per hour
  • Memory
  • CPU(s)/shares
  • Disk Size
  • Disk backups
  • Network Speed
  • IP Addresses. Only the first five IP addresses are displayed on the virtual server properties page. To view the list of all virtual server IP addresses, mouse over IP addresses area or go to the Networking > IP addresses tab.
  • Autoscale - move the slider to enable/disable the autoscaling rules set for this VS.

    • Until the autoscaling rules are configured the autoscaling itself will not start working.
    • If the Autoscale slider is greyed out that means that you have reached the autoscaling limit in billing plan (or the max is set as 0).
  • Auto-backups - move the slider to enable/disable automatic backups for this VS. If the incremental backups are enabled in your cloud, you can set auto-backups per VS rather than per disk.

    If the automation options weren’t enabled during this virtual server creation, you’ll be redirected to the form where you can configure them.
  • Accelerate - move the Accelerate slider to the right to enable acceleration for this VS or move this slider to the left to disable acceleration for this VS. This option is available if the cloud administrator has CDN enabled for the cloud and has added and configured an Accelerator. For more information, refer to CDN Accelerator section.


The Notes section lists brief comments or reminders for a VS. You can add either Admin's or User's notes. The Admin's note will be available to cloud administrators. Click the Actions button in the Notes section of the page to add admin's or user's note.

VS Management

  • Click the Tools button to expand the Tools menu with the VS management options .
  • Use the top menu to manage your virtual servers' statistics/networking/storage options.
