On the next page, you’ll need to complete a few details for your server.

Simply enter a name for your server into the provided field and then choose which OS and data centre location you wish to use (if necessary). If you’re not sure which data centre to use, choose the one that’s closest to you.

Once you’ve done this, click Next.

Step 5 of 6

On the next page, you’ll need to create a username and password for your Admin user.

From there, click Finish to confirm these settings.

Please note: your username should use a mixture of lowercase letters and numbers, and shouldn’t include the terms ‘server’ or ‘password’.

After a few minutes, your server will be ready for you to use.
