This guide will show what you can do in each of the Instance Management Panel sections (found in the top navigation menu).
Here you can view the present firewall profile that is active for the selected instance.
You can change the firewall profile that is applied to the instance by pressing the Change button, and then selecting a different firewall profile.
No Present Volumes
If a volume is not presently created, you’ll see a button Add Volume Here.
Pressing this button will take the you to the Volumes panel, where you can create/edit/manage available volumes.
Upon creating the volume, the new volume is seen below the “Your Volumes” section:
Now that this has been done, you can return to the instance’s volume selection to manage your instance’s volume.
If your volume is present, it will display on the Volumes instance panel. You can then select Actions, and Attach Server.
The Console Log displays the most current log output from the stdout of the instance.
This is helpful when troubleshooting issues, especially if they occur during a boot/reboot, to view the specific standard output log.
Here you can upgrade your instance to a template backed tier or to a custom plan.
In the example above, the instance is a Tier 3, so the next available option would be a Tier 4 or higher. You’ll also be able to select your billing cycle for the instance when upgrading. You can choose from a pre-paid backed plan or an hourly plan.
Upon selection of the upgrade and billing cycle, you’ll press Upgrade Instance. From there, the instance will be required to reboot to perform the upgrade process.
The above button is what will be displayed when an instance can have the disk space increased. When pressed, a popup box will display, providing you with a warning that this cannot be undone.
The Action Log displays the logs of all management actions that have taken place since the creation of the instance. These are logs of management actions, such as rebooting, shutting down, reinstalling the instance.
The Manage IPs panel displays the assigned IPs for the instance, including IPv4, and IPv6. The tab also displays the instance’s assigned IPv6 /64 subnet pool.
Here you can assign additional IPv6 IPs from the /64 by pressing the Add v6 IP Address button.
Upon pressing the button, a new IPv6 IP will be assigned, and you’ll receive the confirmation message seen below.
You can also manage your rDNS records from the Manage IPs tab by pressing the Update rDNS button next to the IP they you’d like to set the rDNS for.
