Gcore Brazil São Paulo Standard vCPU Unlimited Data Transfer VPS Hosting Test and Review

Gcore’s Control Panel lets you connect to your instance via the Console. To do so, click on the desired instance, and in the next window, click on “Access to Console.” The system will then ask you to enter your username and password.

For Linux instances, the login is located to the right of the “Access to Console” button and is in the format of “[login]@[IP of the instance].” The login often coincides with the name of the OS. You would have entered the password while creating the instance when you filled in the user data in the “Additional features.”

For Windows instances, the login for all instances is “Admin.” When creating the instance, you would have entered the password in the “Access” field.

In conclusion, Gcore’s Control Panel provides an easy way for users to connect to their instances via the Console.
