For Cloud Servers

After logging into the Cloud Panel, the Infrastructure > Servers section is displayed. In the upper-right corner, the date and time of the last login to the Cloud Panel and the IP address from which the login was made are listed. If a login fails, in addition to the above information, you will also see the number of failed login attempts since the last successful login and the country where the login was attempted.

In the Infrastructure > Servers section you can manage your servers. In this section you can start, restart and shut down the server. In addition, you can reinstall the server if necessary. To perform any of these actions, activate a server and click Actions. Then you can perform the desired action.
