We deliver Linux VPS with default Timezone i.e. MST – Mountain Standard Time. You may need to change default timezone with your home timezone. It’s pretty easy when you choose WHM control panel to be installed on your server. This article will explain you steps to change the timezone of your server via WHM. Be noted that you will need root access to change the timezone.
