Having customized your blockchain and connected to a server provider, the next step is to select a server configuration for your network. While several options exist, we do recommend that you choose a configuration that offers optimal performance since this will allow you to scale your blockchain in the future.
Navigate to ‘Server Configuration’
While viewing the Blockchain Wizard, you will notice a strikethrough across the Customize Your Blockchain and Connect a Server Provider steps. In order to select a server configuration for your blockchain, you will need to click on Server Configuration.
The Server Configuration page contains a few fields that you will need to fill in and/or select an option from.
Server Name - Enter a name for your server.
Server Provider - This section will display the server provider (either DigitalOcean or Hetzner ) you selected in the previous step.
