A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is similar to a public cloud instance. However, unlike a public cloud instance where the user shares resources with other users, a VPS has dedicated resources to that specific instance, giving the user full control over those hardware resources. In this guide, we will cover how to use your VPS in the OVHcloud Manager.
To navigate to the Home tab, first log in to the OVHcloud Manager. Next click the arrow next to "VPS" in the left-hand sidebar and select your VPS.
The "Shortcuts" box on the Home tab allows you to perform several functions with your VPS such as rebooting, reinstalling, accessing the VPS via KVM, and deleting the VPS entirely. The "Configuration" box will tell you some basic information about your VPS and the "IP" box will show you all of the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses associated with your VPS.
Next to the Home tab, we have the Secondary DNS tab.
On this tab, we can configure secondary DNS. This is used to hedge against a network outage from your primary DNS host.
