Admin Control Panel

Gcore Japan Tokyo Standard vCPU Unlimited Data Transfer VPS Hosting Test and Review

Gcore has an Admin Control Panel allows users to connect to their instances. To connect to an instance via the Console in your Control Panel, 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.

The location of the username and password depends on the instance’s OS. You will see the login to the right of the “Access to Console” button for Linux instances. There is an inscription of the “ [login]@ [IP of the instance]” type. Most often, the login coincides with the name of the OS. For example, with Ubuntu as its OS, the login would be “ubuntu.” You 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.” Enter the password in the “Access” field when creating the instance.
