For Dynamic Cloud Server

Here we show you how to reinitialize your server.

By means of a new initialization you can, for example, reset your server to the delivery status or install a new operating system. To do this, proceed as follows:

Please note: When your server is initialized, all data on it is irretrievably lost! Make a backup of your data beforehand to avoid unintentional data loss.

Step 1

Log in to 1&1 IONOS and select the relevant contract.

Step 2

Click in the area Server to Server Administration.

Step 3

Select the appropriate virtual machine (VM).

Step 4

On the menu, click Administer and select Server Initialization.

Step 5

Select the operating system to install and click Next.

Step 6

Click Initialize to start the process.

Once the server is set up, you can log in as root (for Linux) or administrator (for Windows) using your initial password.
