How to get started with VestaCP

VestaCP (Vesta Control Panel) is one of the most popular free server control panels. VestaCP suppurts Linux OS (Debian/Redhat/CentOS/Ubuntu) and consist of both Apache and Nginx webservers. Before installing the panel, you can test the demo version of VestaCP on the official website.


The VestaCP panel is installed automatically if you specify it when ordering a new VPS server with Linux OS. LAMP is also installed with the panel.


You can also install the VestaCP panel yourself. Select the components required for installation in the Install section on the official website. On the same page of the site there is installation instructions

Authorization in VestaCP panel

After installing the panel, you will receive a letter with the connection details to your email.

For automatic installation, you need to specify your email address when ordering the server.  For manual installation, you need to specify your email address when installing the panel. Be sure to specify a valid email address.

The panel is available at https://IP.of.your.server:8083. The link for access will be contained in the letter with authorization data.

When you first enter the VestaCP panel, you will see a warning about an unsafe connection. A secure protocol certified by Vesta is used, not a certification authority.


To continue click Advanced – Proceed to IP.of.your.server. (Allow or others depending on the browser). After that, you can log in to the control panel.
