  • Writing requirements

    • No advertising any paid services.
    • No mentioning of other providers offering similar services to Vultr.
    • Outside URLs are used as minimally as possible.
    • Articles are submitted in the English language with proper spelling and grammar.
    • Content that you submit is original, it must not be published on other websites, other communities, or other knowledge archives.
    • In most cases, we do not publish two articles on the same topic. Topics are reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • Submission rules

    • Vultr team members may make changes to your article to improve readability.
    • You must submit the article using the same email address that is used with your Vultr account.
    • Your account will be reviewed for payment eligibility. Payment will only be made to active Vultr accounts that have been previously funded (from within the Vultr control panel).
  • Writing tips

    • 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 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.
    • Rather than writing paragraphs on common tasks, such as "How to Add a Sudo User" or "How to Install SteamCMD", reference an existing Vultr Doc appropriate for the platform you're writing about.
  • Banned topic list

    • How to bypass or "crack" licensing systems of applications.
    • Peer-to-peer sharing guides, for programs such as Bit Torrent, etc.
    • Anonymous surfing guides, for programs such as Tor, Shadowsocks, etc.
    • LAMP stacks or LEMP stacks for any platform.
    • Game guides focusing on SteamCMD installation. Game guides should have a basic synposis of how to install the game, but contain information about using and customizing the game server. This article may be referenced.
  • Example domains and IP addresses

    • When an example IP address or domain name is needed in your article, please use one from this list.
    • Any IPv4 addresses in blocks 192.0.2.0/24, 198.51.100.0/24, and 203.0.113.0/24.
