Linux Virtual Servers
Answers to frequently asked questions from customers who want to use online hosting services
All installed servers by default have an activated openssh daemon, so immediately after starting the server, you can connect to it. After registering the account, to your contact E-mail should be sent a letter, in which the server IP address, login and password of the root user will be indicated. Also, the root password can always be found in the properties of the virtual machine in the VMmanager control panel.
In addition, if you already have access to the VMmanager control panel, you can add your ssh-rsa public key to it - then the entrance to all the virtual machines installed in the future will be available by your private key.

Linux is an open-source operating system that does not require any licenses.
In regards to operating system management, a virtual Linux server is similar to a physical dedicated server. That is, you get: root access to the server, your own IP addresses, reverse record management, and guaranteed resources. Renting a Linux virtual server provides you with a working operating system according to the chosen distribution. And you do all the work of installing and configuring programs on a virtual machine by yourself.
There are a number of reasons that make a Linux server efficient. Among them are the following:
One of the best features of Linux VPS hosting is its reputation as the most stable operating system. It managed to avoid crashes that lead to the need for a reboot. So you don't have to worry about a sudden server failure.
Linux is popular because of its high and reliable security, which makes it almost impossible for viruses and malware to penetrate its defenses. This ensures that your business is protected from fraud and network dangers.
It is important that the Linux web server is exclusively under your control because only the owner of the VPS has root user rights, that is, full access to the system.Your virtual machine is completely isolated from other clients. Therefore, a neighbor that consumes a lot of resources will not affect your server. Similarly, no one will be able to access your files.
Linux virtual servers do not require additional payment of any license fees. This type of hosting is quite cost-effective and has its benefits in the long run.
The main advantage is that you work in an isolated operating system that is available to customize the server to meet your needs.
Sufficient resources are allocated for your projects. Your business can grow until you need a dedicated server. Host an unlimited number of sites, domains and subdomains, databases, ssh / ftp / email users.
A Linux virtual server is limited only by the system resources of the current tariff plan, which can be changed if required. Or you can order additional resources within the appropriate package.
For most customers, the main advantage of a Linux VPS is its flexibility.Each virtual server has its own environment, which means that you can easily and securely install the operating system and software you need, and you can make any configuration changes to your virtual machine by yourself.
