Getting Started With F2H VPS Products
Getting started with F2H VPS instances is quick. During signup, you already choose an Operating System which is in the process of being installed, if you have just ordered. This post details how to access our services. Historically, customers would need to enable root access to access instances from external connections on the F2H network. Based on feedback we now configure root access automatically on new Operating Systems. On Legacy Operating Systems like CentOS 7 you still need to enable root access.
