    • Users reading your articles are primarily interested in server administration and applications.
    • Your instructions should work on a new virtual server. Readers will be testing them step-by-step.
    • When writing a guide for an operating system, target a specific version such as "Ubuntu 16.04". Commands go stale over time, and targeting an OS family like "Ubuntu" causes frustration when guides do not work.
    • When you need to use a domain name or IP address in your article, try to use one from the list below.
    • The "Article Tutorial" on this page contains examples of text formatting.
    • Read through some published Vultr Docs to understand acceptable guide formats.
