    1. First, log in to the VPB account you registered, click servers and then manage, accept.
    2. Complete the following fields:
      • Enter Server Name — The server name (also known as your account name) helps you identify this account on your account list.
      • Select Operating System — Choose the operating system you want to run on the server.
      • Set Overage Protection — Bandwidth Overage Protection shields you from costly bandwidth overage fees by automatically suspending your account when its allotted bandwidth is exceeded. Your suspended account is reinstated at the start of your next billing cycle or when additional bandwidth is purchased.
      • Enter User Name — The user name created here is the name you use to log in to your server. On Linux® servers, you cannot log in to your server as "root". If you need root access, ask the tech team online to help you
      • Enter New Password — Use this password when you access your server using the User Name or when using root access.
      • Confirm New Password
    3. Click Continue, confirm your settings then submit
    If you purchased FTP Backups with your server, complete the FTP Backup Login Information fields:

    • FTP User Name — The user name used to access your FTP Backup account from your server
    • FTP Password — Use this password when you access your FTP Backup account from your server using the FTP User Name
    • Confirm FTP Password — Confirm your password
    Once you click Submit, your virtual private server should be ready to use in approximately 5 hours. We will contact you once it is ready.

    Usually, it's not difficult, if you have any trouble in doing this, leave your message here, I will help you to fix it

    Oh, nice list of instructions. I will definitely use this the next time I need to setup a new VPS that I may get.
