I recently purchased a VPS. Can the provider see the IP address I use when connecting to my VPS?

  • You tagged this VPN. Do you mean to suggest that you are using one? Or what is the tag for? – Anders Feb 28 '18 at 21:45

    This is a very simple question and shows no research at all. – forest Mar 1 '18 at 4:29

Yes, they can see your public IP which is making the connection to VPS through their network.

  • Would using a VPN when connecting simply solve this issue? – Mr Anyone Mar 1 '18 at 1:20
