Press the Boot button in order to boot it again. You can track the boot process by using noVNC


SSD Disk expansion, HDD Disk expansion

If you have requested an expansion of your SSD or HDD disk, then you need to expand the file system of your server in order to use the extra space.
You can perform the action yourself (either within your operating system or by booting it with Gparted ISO from your server management interface) or open a new ticket to our Support Department requesting the file system expansion. Please note that you need to provide us with your Administrator/Root credentials.
