Gen 4 VPS & Dedicated Servers Help

Set up my Gen 4 server

After you purchase a Generation 4 VPS or Dedicated Server, it's time to complete your setup with its server name and other administrative info.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Under Servers, next to the Generation 4 server you want to use, click Manage.
  3. Enter a name for your server in the Server name field.
  4. Select an OS and data center location (if available) and then click Next.

    Note: For self-managed servers: learn more about ISPConfig.

  5. Complete the following fields, and then click Finish.
    Field Description
    Admin Username Create a username to log in to your server. Use a string of 5 to 12 lowercase letters and/or numbers. Don't use reserved words like "server" or "password."
    Password & Confirm Password Enter a password to log in to the server.

    We'll complete the setup and your server should be ready to use shortly.

    Note: If your server isn't ready to go within 6 hours, contact a GoDaddy Guide for assistance.
