    If you have a GUI installed on the server such as KDE you can get a KVM over IP if your provider offers it, but it is usually expensive. I would suggest to start learning command line and just ssh into the box. If you need a book the Linux Pocket Guide is a good general reference guide.

    what kind of interface? You didnt specifically say you need a gui, so why not just use SSH? RemoteKVM is also an option, which would put you at the console. Elite Tier 1 Web Hosting and Managed Services

    I would suggest using a program like Putty to access your web hosting box. Most operations via the command line are fairly easy with FreeBSD especially major stuff like compiling a new kernel etc. I personally would avoid having a gui on a web hosting box.
