Creating a new server
Bare Metal Cloud instances
Bare Metal Cloud instances are physical servers deployed automatically through our platform. We take care of the provisioning, Operating System installation, and configuration based on the settings you choose, and you receive access to your new server in 15 minutes.
To create a new Bare Metal Cloud instance, login to Control and click on New Server. You'll be taken to this page:
On this page, you'll be able to select the size and operating system of choice, as well as SSH keys, and setting up a hostname.
Once your server is deployed, we'll send you an email notifying that the server is ready for use.
There'll be a link that'll take you to Control, where you'll find the server's IP, username and password credentials. These credentials will be available for 72 hours. If you don't get the credentials before that, you'll have to reinstall the server.
For security reasons, after logging into your server for the first time, you'll be prompted to change your password.
Custom and Spot servers
To deploy Custom and Spot servers, go to https://www.maxihost.com/pricing/ and select a server.
Similar to Bare Metal Cloud instances, you'll be taken to a page where you can select different options. For Custom servers, you'll be able to customize every aspect of it, including Processor, Memory, Hard Drives and more.
