How Do I start a new cloud server?

To start a new Cloud server, complete the following steps:

  1. Click the Cloud Servers button in the menu bar.
  2. Find an empty slot and select your desired distribution from the dropdown menu.
  3. Click the Server Actions button for that slot.
  4. Click Create Server button.

Wait for the cloud server to finish starting up (this can take up to 5 minutes, even after being assigned an IP address) and connect to your new cloud server!
