Clients of our company manage the hardware in the server`s and API control panel — Invapi.

You can find the authorization data either in the Info >> 'Tags tab of the server control panel or in the email that was sent.

Opening SMTP ports for organizing corporate mail service

For security reasons, outgoing TCP ports (25,24,2525, 387, 465, and 587) and UDP port (5060) are blocked by default on all VPS servers. This is to prevent the sending of spam.

To remove the block, follow the steps below:

  1. Spell out the domain zone.The A record of the domain must necessarily refer to the IP address of your server in HOSTKEY.

  2. Send a request to technical support stating that you need to open outgoing SMTP ports for sending mail and the address of the domain from which (or a subdomain of which) it is being sent.


    We reserve the right to ask you additional questions about the domain name and your options for using it.

  3. After analyzing the domain name we will make a decision about opening ports for SMTP operation and inform you.
