Issue: I don't know where to go to upgrade the hardware configuration for my Dedicated server.
Cause: Tasks I enact on my server would run better if I had more cores, larger HD space, or more RAM.
Solution: Users can upgrade their hardware configuration from the Web Portal. Simply do the following:
1. Log onto the Web Portal
2. Hover your mouse over "My Servers" and click on "Dedicated"
3. Click "Update" on the server you wish to change the hardware configuration of
4. Select the upgrades you want and then confirm.
Upgrades are automatically applied and are ready approximately 5 minutes after purchase.
Note that if you upgraded your Dedicated server with an external hard drive you will need to format it before use with the following steps:
1. When you first log onto your server you will automatically be prompted with the following box. Select "Initialize..." to continue.
2. Select the correct disk to format. Notice the drive selected does not have a sub drive associated with it.
3. Select "Erase" and enter the new name for your External HD. This will complete the process: Your new hard drive is now ready for use.
