New BIP VPS Server Setup

Hello Everyone,

Here are the instructions to order/provision and access your new BIP Media Secure Server at our Boca Raton, FL data center located at  BRIC innovation campus.
To get start go to the "Store" located in the dark blue navigation bar on top. Choose the server package you would like. for this example we will choose "KVM VPS Hosting"

Chose the package you would like to order.

For this example we will choose the 3rd option.

if you do not have a domain name yet and would like to continue and update it later simply type "testing" "com" in the boxes as indicated above.

Select continue to get to the next screen.

Type "ns1" and "ns2" in the Prefix boxes and then your server Root Password.

NOTE: Write down the password in a safe place. This is your server Root password and you will need it to be able to login to your New BIP Server.
Select continue to get to the next screen.
Add the information in the fields and select the server configuration/addons.
To make things simpler for this demo we will select Ubuntu 18 or 19 from the "OS Template" section.

For security you will need to generate a ssh key.

Here is the instruction on how to do it on a windows pc.
if you do not generate a key this is the error you will get when you try to ssh:

| PuTTY Fatal Error                                                                                 X  |
|                                                                                                                     |
|             "Disconnected": No supported authentication methods          |
|               available (Server cent: publickey)"                                           |
|                                                                                                                     |
|                                                                                                                     |
and off course if you want you can activate root and password authentication after first login
If you have any questions or issues, as always, simply open up a support ticket and someone here will be happy to help.
