How do I Know What Server I am Using?

You may find out which server you are on using two different methods.

Method 1: Welcome Letter

Your welcome letter contains the server that you are on. If you no longer have your welcome letter, you can login to the Client Area on canhost.ca. From here, you can check and review all the e-mail that has been sent to your account, and your welcome letter should be listed.

Method 2: A Trace Route

You can do a trace route to your main IP address or any active IP address hosted on your service. Usually, the hop before reaching your VPS is the server you are on. We create a PTR (reverse DNS entry) for all of our nodes, so that you can see what the associated domain or host name of your server is.
