Your new Virtual Private Server has been designed to act and feel as close to a dedicated UNIX server as
possible. This Getting Started guide is intended to help new VPS administrators learn and perform the basic
tasks required to get a new VPS up and running.
Because of the similarity between the VPS and a dedicated UNIX server, an administrator who is already familiar
with UNIX or Linux may already know the commands and procedures discussed in this section. We do, however, also
take the time to discuss a few important security practices which would be worth reviewing. It is a good idea to
go through the basic steps discussed in this guide for every new VPS, no matter how familiar you are with Virtual
Private Servers, or UNIX.
Connecting to your Virtual Private Server
In this section, we discuss the various methods for accessing your new Virtual Private Server, including
Shell, FTP, and Web access. We will also discuss usage of the iManager Control Panel tool.
Getting your Web site up and Running
This section is a discussion of the steps required to move an existing Web site from another server to your
new Virtual Private Server, including preparing your site to be moved, configuring your server, and getting the
new location running.
