If you previously purchased your dedicated or Virtual Private Server (VPS) without a control panel, you can purchase the upgrade to add a control panel and reprovision your server with the selected control panel installed.
Once you purchase your control panel, you can upgrade using the Server Hosting Manager.
WARNING: Upgrading to a control panel requires that your server be reprovisioned and the operating system reloaded. Reprovisioning erases all of the content on the server hard drive. All of your data will be lost. We strongly recommend that you back up your data before initiating the control panel installation.
Your server will not be reprovisioned and your new control panel will not be installed until you initiate the upgrade from the Dedicated Hosting Manager.
You will receive a confirmation notice when your control panel upgrade is complete and you can access your account.
Typically, your server will be ready in less than five hours. However, if you have a RAID card or hardware firewall, it may take up to 24 hours before your server is ready.
