Logging into your game panel

If you're using as the domain, then you can skip the next paragraph.

If you're using a custom domain, you need to setup the DNS records. For help doing this, follow our micro-guide on Pointing your domain at WISP (DNS). Note: after you have setup the DNS records, custom domains will take a couple more minutes before you can access them.

To login to your panel, you'll need to follow the link in the email we sent you. This will setup your administrator account on the instance, and this is what you will use to login into the instance from now on. If it isn't obvious, it's worth noting your account on your game panel is separate from the account you use to login to the dashboard on

Installing the daemon on your node

<aside> ⚠️ If you're Migrating to WISP from Pterodactyl, you should follow the instructions on that page before installing the daemon on a node you want to migrate!


Find your install command in the dashboard by scrolling down and clicking "Copy Command" on the license you want to use. You will get a command that looks like this:

bash <(wget -qO- "<>")

<aside> 🚧 This command contains your license key! Make sure you don't re-use or share your license key.


Depending on your system, the installation can take some time. The daemon will add itself to your panel automatically. Please be patient & allow up to 5 minutes for the process to complete & the daemon to register itself on the panel. The node must meet the minimum requirements.

Please read the troubleshooting documentation, should the Node not show up as registered or active.

You can locate the newly registered Node on the Admin Panel under Management → Nodes. Admin Panel can be reached by clicking on the settings cog at the bottom left corner or by typing /admin at the end of your Panel instance URL, such as with replaced with your own domain.

The final step

Before you can start deploying servers, you'll need to setup the IP allocations for the node. We have a guide on Adding Allocations. For help deploying your first game server, check the WISP Game Panel Quick Start guide.
