This will take you to the reboot screen for your chosen server. You can choose between a software reboot and a hardware reboot.

A software reboot, sometimes known as a warm reboot, is a restart of the software aspects of your server, in a similar manner to restarting your home PC.

A hardware reboot, sometimes known as a cold reboot, is a reboot of the server as a whole, where all of the hardware is completely switched off before it is restarted.

Select the type of reboot you would like to initiate from the drop-down menu and then click the Next button.
