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.
Log in to 1&1 IONOS and select the relevant contract.
Click in the area Server to Server Administration.
Select the appropriate virtual machine (VM).
On the menu, click Administer and select Server Initialization.
Select the operating system to install and click Next.
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.
