Your console is a KVM style shell into your system, even if you lock yourself out of your VPS or the SSH service is down, you are still able to access your console and fix your server.

Your console is not a direct replacement for a shell application such as Term, it should only be used for emergencies.

 

CPU Usage Charts

Backups

If you have enabled the backups option, you will receive 3 automatic backups (Daily, Weekly & Monthly) plus a “manual” backup.
Use this screen to create a snapshot backup of your VPS at any time, or to restore a backup.
Backups can be created while your system is running, however restoring a backup will require the system be shut down.

The time these operations will take to complete depends on the amount of data stored on the system.
