VPS v2: Online User Manual

bullet Introduction

Welcome to the VPS v2 Online User Manual. VPS v2 reflects our goal to provide a shared hosting solution with the power and flexibility of a dedicated UNIX server. This manual provides information about, and instruction for using, the most common capabilities of VPS v2. This is by no means a complete or detailed compilation of everything that is possible with a VPS v2, nor does it attempt to duplicate the already existing documentation for the FreeBSD operating system on which VPS v2 is based.

The VPS v2 environment is intended to look and act as close to a dedicated FreeBSD server as possible, while still sharing the physical server with other VPS v2 servers. In addition to reducing the cost of a VPS v2 compared to a dedicated UNIX server. This system allows our highly trained System Administrators and Technical Support representatives to manage the core functionality of the servers, including initial configuration. The VPS v2 administrator is left with the ability to configure and manage all the main services, including Email, Shell, Web, and FTP, as well as the power to expand the abilities of the VPS v2.
