How can I restart my server remotely?

There are many ways to restart your server remotely without having to contact our Support team.

If you have access to your server…

Connect to your server through SSH and run either of these commands:

  • shutdown -r now
  • reboot
  • init 6

After connecting to your Windows server using Remote Desktop, use the start button to initiate a restart.

If you cannot access your server…

Use the IPMI Interface

Most of our dedicated servers come with a remote management interface. From OnePortal, simply click the black console icon next to your server’s name. You can then login using your OnePortal login.
