Following are the security measures taken at the data center for the safety of data and servers:
Camera: CCTV surveillance cameras
Security Guards: 24×7 on-site security presence
Building Access: Photo ID required
Room Access: Access card and biometric authentication
- Why should I keep my screen resolution 100% while using MyAccount Portal?
Currently, the user interface of the MyAccount portal only supports 100% resolution on any screen size.
If you use a different screen resolution, — for example, 110%, 120% or 90%, 80% — the MyAccount portal will not function as expected, and this can lead to an unpleasant experience.
We recommend you to keep your screen resolution to 100% whenever you are logged in to the MyAccount portal. Furthermore, we are working to support all types of screen resolution for the MyAccount portal, and this will no longer be a problem in the near future.
- I am unable to perform some actions like Reboot, Power Off, Save Image, etc., on my machine(s) through the MyAccount portal?
This is a known issue. This problem is common if your screen resolution is other than 100%. This issue can be alleviated by adjusting your screen resolution to 100%.
We are working on this, and the issue will be fixed in the near future.
Virtual Compute Nodes

You can launch up to 25 Virtual Compute Nodes via the E2E Networks ‘MyAccount’ Panel
- How can I increase the limit on the number of Virtual Compute Nodes I can run?
You can email us at email@example.com and someone from our team shall run you through the process of increasing the limits by converting to a post-paid account.
- How can I resize a Virtual Compute Node?
Open a support ticket with firstname.lastname@example.org by emailing us. We’ll schedule a downtime and upgrade it as per your convenience.
- Would the IPv4 addresses assigned to my cloud instances change after rebooting the server?
Public and Private IPv4 addresses assigned to you will not change after rebooting a cloud instance
- Do I get root access to my node?
We enable you as a root user and will email share the root access credentials on your email.
- I did not receive a welcome email / I forgot my password. Can you resend it?
Please use the support section inside your MyAccount to generate a support ticket for Cloud Platform team and we’ll reach out to you.
- Why didn’t I receive a root password via Email (I didn’t use ssh-keys)?
Please use the help buttons inside the MyAccount to generate a support ticket for Cloud Platform team and we’ll reach out to you.
- I no longer require an account, can I de-activate & archive my account?
Send us an email to email@example.com via your account’s primary email to de-activate your account. However, you’ll continue to have access to your E2E Cloud Invoice Portal even after the account is de-activated since you may need access to invoices/account balance statement for tax purposes.
Yes, mirrored RAID-10 or RAID-1 setups are present on all servers to protect against failure of 1 disk at a time.
We offer you a CDP (Continuous Data Protection) backup plans which backup your entire server minus excluded directories as per a backup schedule.
Using CDP, we take a snapshot of the entire filesystem onto the backup server in highly compressed CDP disk safe format. When the CDP agent is run for the first time, it does a complete sync of the system.
Each new backup is incremental for the changes made to your server between current backup and last backup thus speeding up the process and decreasing the load which occurs due to the backup process running on the server.
- Is my server at E2E Networks automatically backed up?
We do not recommend you to keep a backup on your node. If your machine gets corrupted or destroyed due to any reason then these backups are lost. This is worse than having no backups at all as it gives you a false sense of security and when there is a catastrophe from which data is recoverable it takes far more time to recover data than from a machine which is not used as a version control system.
- But you have RAID-10 or RAID-1 on all your servers which means a mirrored copy of data is always present? Why do I still need a backup plan?
While mirrored RAID setups are present on all the servers and it can protect against failure of 1 disk at a time but it won’t protect against the following scenarios:-
1. Corruption of data due to a security compromise on the machine
2. Accidental deletion or corruption of data by someone in your team with access to your primary data stores and database ( say via phpmyadmin )
3. A catastrophic hardware failure due to which two or more disks get damaged at the same time, this can make even a RAID-10 un-recoverable.
It is best possible practice to keep a CDP backup for data protection against any uncertainties.

- I have successfully changed my DNS records but the changes aren’t reflecting?
When you make changes to your DNS records, it takes some time to propagate the changes.
- How long does it take to refresh my DNS cache?
The DNS cache takes a certain amount of time to fully refresh. We suggest you wait for 24 hours for the DNS to be refreshed according to the Time To Live(TTL). Time to live (TTL) is used for DNS servers to reflect the changes after a certain period of time or number of iterations or time taken by the data before it should be discarded.
- I have set up the TXT records in my DNS settings but my emails are landing in SPAM?
The 3-email security standards SPF, DKIM, and DMARC hold a lot of importance & implementing them correctly can help to reduce your emails landing in SPAM & avoid sender fraud.
- What are SPF Records?
Adding an SPF record to your zone file will eliminate spammers and bounce back to your domain.
Sender Policy Framework (SPF) records are public records on your website that authorize servers to send mail with your domain details (like @mydomain.com). SPF protocol will check the sending server’s domain and help to make sure your emails are landing in the inbox from a legitimate source thus preventing the sender address forgery.
- Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM)
DomainKeys Identified Mail is a TXT record published in your Domain Name System (DNS).
In DKIM there are public keys (Known to everyone) and private keys(secret) which are mathematically linked to ensure a secured public communication channel.
With DKIM authentication each outgoing Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server needs the correct private key and prefix to verify and match a receiving server public DNS record.
- Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance (DMARC)
DMARC was developed to limit email-based abuse. It works by enabling the sender to validate that their messages are protected with SPF and/or DKIM. If an email does not pass SPF/DKIM authentication, then DMARC policy applies instructions to reject or junk it with a report of PASS and/or FAIL DMARC evaluation.
