You use PuTTY to connect to your VPS via the IP address on the web control panel. Check on the droplet's list for your server's IP address!

How do i make it so i can see my VPS desktop

  • Droplets do not have a Desktop GUI by default. If you want to use your droplet as a remote desktop you would need to set up and configure VNC or xrdp.

    VNC is a connection system that allows you to manage your Ubuntu server with a graphical desktop environment. With VNC, you can use your keyboard and mouse to interact with a graphical display of your remote server, making it easier to work with the server.

Have you got facebook? so I can talk to you on there and that.

Best to use putty to set this up but once done you will have a desktop to log into.

Hello Marriottbrandon,

If you are using a Linux or MacOs Desktop you can log-in by Terminal, (Find or type in your desktop's search box "terminal"
There will be appear a Black windows (May be Black) popup
Type in that windows.

$ssh root@ipaddress 
The IP address you have get by registered email with Digital Ocean.
Exapmle:
$ssh root@127.0.0.1
