How do I manage my VPS? Print

  • 4

After order activation, Virtual Private Servers are managed through our Client Area in your My Services section. 

You can also login to our VPS Portal at https://vps.falconeye.gg. Click the link on the left hand side to complete your login once you are in one of your active servers.

You are able to manage start, stop, restart, and OS reload functionality directly from our Client Area. Resetting root passwords along with Console access is done through the same area. IP address information is sent via e-mail after purchase and visible for you at any time in our Client Area.

You are able to remotely connect and manage your server from Putty and WinSCP over port 22 TCP.

You must add a Rule in your myFalcon Firewall Manager to open port 22 to your IP address. Firewall rules take up to 15 minutes to apply. Traffic is set to DENY-ALL for your VPS. If you plan on hosting game servers or website hosting, be sure to open the respective ports to all IPs. See our myFalcon Firewall Manager knowledgebase section for more information.


Using Putty

PuTTY is a free and open-source terminal emulator and SSH client for Windows. It allows users to securely connect to a remote server, such as a VPS server, over a secure encrypted connection. With PuTTY, users can access the command line interface of the server and perform various tasks, such as installing software packages, configuring the server, and managing files and folders. PuTTY is a powerful tool for managing remote servers and is particularly useful for users who are comfortable using the command line interface.

Step 1: Download and Install PuTTY

First, download PuTTY from the official website (https://www.putty.org/) and install it on your Windows computer.

Step 2: Launch PuTTY

Launch PuTTY from the Start menu or by double-clicking the PuTTY icon on your desktop.

Step 3: Configure PuTTY

In the "PuTTY Configuration" window, enter the IP address of your VPS server in the "Host Name (or IP address)" field.

In the "Connection type" section, select "SSH".

Enter "22" in the "Port" field.

Step 4: Save the Session

You can save your connection settings by entering a name in the "Saved Sessions" field and clicking the "Save" button.

This will save your connection settings for future use, so you don't have to enter them every time you want to connect.

Step 5: Connect to the Server

Click the "Open" button to connect to the server. You will be prompted to enter your username and password.

Enter the username and password provided by your hosting provider to log in to the server.

Congratulations! You have now successfully connected to your VPS server on port 22 using PuTTY. You can now start using the command line interface to manage your server.


Using WinSCP

WinSCP is a free and open-source FTP and SFTP client for Windows. It allows users to securely transfer files between their local computer and a remote server, such as a VPS server, over a secure encrypted connection. With WinSCP, users can manage files and folders on the server using a graphical user interface, which makes it easy to perform tasks such as uploading and downloading files, editing files, and creating new folders. Overall, WinSCP is a powerful tool for managing remote servers and is particularly useful for users who are not familiar with the command line interface.

Step 1: Download and Install WinSCP

First, download WinSCP from the official website (https://winscp.net/eng/download.php) and install it on your Windows computer.

Step 2: Launch WinSCP

Launch WinSCP from the Start menu or by double-clicking the WinSCP icon on your desktop.

Step 3: Configure WinSCP

In the "Session" tab of the "Login" window, enter the IP address of your VPS server in the "Host name" field.

Enter your username and password in the "User name" and "Password" fields respectively.

In the "File protocol" section, select "SFTP".

Enter "22" in the "Port number" field.

Step 4: Save the Session

You can save your connection settings by entering a name in the "Session name" field and clicking the "Save" button.

This will save your connection settings for future use, so you don't have to enter them every time you want to connect.

Step 5: Connect to the Server

Click the "Login" button to connect to the server. You may receive a warning message about the server's fingerprint. Click "Yes" to continue.

You will then be logged in to your VPS server via WinSCP. You can use the graphical user interface to manage your server files and folders.
