How To Setup a Server with Ubuntu 18.04

Order a server

Place your order for a new VPS or Dedicated Server with Unmetered Bandwidth on our website:
We are interconnected in multiple PoPs from Europe and have great connectivity to most providers. With over 2Tbps of edge capacity we are able to sustain any high traffic needs.

Create a new user

For security reasons, it is recommended not to use “root” username.
You can create a new user with the following command:

# adduser username

Grant administrator privileges

# usermod -aG sudo username

Basic firewall rules

Deny any connection except SSH (please note that you will need to add new ports to ufw allow in order to make other applications accessible)

# ufw allow OpenSSH
# ufw enable


You are now ready with the basic setup of a new Ubuntu 18.04 server. You can proceed with installing your applications. Don’t forget to open needed ports in ufw in order to make them accessible.
