What is v2ray?
V2Ray, also called vmess protocol, is a sophiscated version of shadow socks, also its a subsection of project V that is responsible for network protocols and communication, and therefore V2ray is based on SOCK5 proxy.
In normal circumstances, proxies lack encryptions and that’s what differentiate them from VPNs. Shadow socks is a SOCKS5 proxy with an encryption while vmess is what we can call to be an upgraded shadow socks.
V2ray is made up of two “protocals” ; vmess, v2rays own protocal and shadowsocks. In addition, you can choose several tunneling obsfuscation options with vmess.
Below is a summary of some of the options you can choose;
- TCP – It is the default connection. “TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a type of protocol or standard to transfer information over the Internet, such as SSH, FTP, HTTP, etc.“
- Websocket – With Websocket you can hide your VPS IP address behind a domain name, making it harder for the VPN blocking firewall to blacklist the IP address.
- mKCP – An alternative to TCP, could be faster than TCP. Could be useful if you need a UDP like protocol.
- QUIC – Google’s alternative to TCP and UDP. Based on UDP. Could be faster than TCP.
In addition, you can mask some of the above protocols and make them look like a Wireguard, WeChat video, torrent, VOIP or DTLS traffic.
Choosing a VPS.
I recommend renting an hourly billing VPS. In case the IP address is blocked, you can open a new server. Find a less popular VPS provider because the firewalls could target the popular ones more often that the smaller ones.
Mainly, you can find two types of VPS, OpenVZ and KVM. Mostly KVM is preferable, because you can use the “Google BBR” command to increase the speed.
If you do not find an hourly billing VPS with a good IP address, then you can go for a cheaper VPS service. I have used and would recommend you to buy VM and Virmach.
There is a way to check whether a VPS service has a working IP address before making a payment. Google “vps looking glass”, and you will find several looking glass pages of VPS services. If you can download the test files without using a VPN, then you can invest your money for the virtual server.
After renting a server, you can test the IP address before installing v2ray. Go to Putty (or an alternative) type in the IP address, if you do not encounter an error, then you are good to go. Alternatively you can ping their IP address using an app.
After ensuring that VPS IPs address is not blocked, you can use a VPN when connecting to your server via Putty or an alternative to prevent the IP address blocking.
Before we proceed to the procedures of creating a vps. Keep in mind that you will need a credit card 💳 to purchase a vps which may be hard to find for some of our readers. Also also some credit cards a restricted for online transactions. Well, we are here to assist you so that you don’t get stuck, get intouch with us so that we can get you a vps without you incurring alot of costs online. Contact Our Support team on the telegram handle below for faster assistance.
I can sugges these VPS services:
Get Domain Name
You will need to acquire a domain name before you run this script. If you want to give a good impression, remember that paid domain names look more professional than free ones. You can get good prices from Namesilo. If you still want a free domain name, you can get one from Freenom. When you create your domain, Freenom will check that the street address you give is consistent with your workstation’s IP address.
For the rest of this tutorial, we use the example domain name of
Create DNS Record
On the Internet, people refer to websites by hostnames. A hostname is effectively a subdivision of your domain name. For example,
b.example.com are both hostnames within the same domain name of
example.com. Hostnames are also referred to as fully qualified domain names (FQDN).
The Internet itself directs traffic between Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. This necessitates the Domain Name System (DNS), which maps hostnames to server IP addresses. The most important DNS record is called a DNS
At a minimum, you will need to create one DNS
A record, connecting your hostname and your server.
Unless you are using a separate DNS service, you should create the DNS
A record at your domain name registrar — either https://www.freenom.com or some other domain name registrar
In the example in this tutorial, we created one DNS
A record. It mapped the subdomain
a of the domain
lizi.gq — in other words, the
a.lizi.gq hostname — to our VPS’s IP address.
4. Terminal Emulator
To log in to your server, you need a terminal emulator that supports Secure Shell (SSH) sessions.
If you are using Windows as your workstation, install PuTTY from https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty or XSHELL6 from https://www.netsarang.com/en/xshell.
If you are using Android on your phone as your workstation, install JuiceSSH from Google Play Store or ApkPure.
On iPad or iPhone, install an SSH client such as Termius.
5. SSH into Server
Some VPS providers give you root access to your server right away. Others give you a non-root user id and, if you want root access, you must log in as the non-root user and then switch users.
Suppose first you are logged in as root. Some providers force you to change your password immediately when you log in for the first time. If you are logged in as root and have not been forced to change the root password, then change it anyway. Type, or copy and paste, the command below into your terminal emulator:
The second possibility is that you are logged in as a non-root user. Set the root password and switch to root as follows. Type or copy and paste each of the two commands below into your terminal emulator.
sudo passwd rootsu –
6. Prepare VPS
If you’ve got this far, you should now be logged in as root.
We have a little preparation to do before running the one-click installation script. Type or copy and paste each of these commands in turn into your terminal emulator.
Get your existing server software up to date:
apt update && apt upgrade -y
Also remove any redundant packages:
Install a package that will ban anyone who repeatedly tries to log in using an incorrect password:
apt install fail2ban
Install a package for getting the one-click script from the web:
apt install wget
V2Ray needs accurate times on both server and client. Display the system date, time, timezone, and year with the command:
Note that many servers use Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) as the time zone.
If the time is not correct, then set it now. For example, to set it to 3:45 p.m. in the server clock’s timezone, use the
date command again like this:
date +%T -s “15:45:00”
7. The One Click
Now we come to the one-click script. Copy and paste the following command from this tutorial into your terminal emulator. This is all one long command, so when you select and copy, make sure you select all of the command:
wget -N –no-check-certificate -q -O install.sh “https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wulabing/V2Ray_ws-tls_bash_onekey/master/install.sh” && chmod +x install.sh && bash install.sh
Here is a demonstration of how this might appear in your terminal emulator. Remember it is all one command, even though it spans several lines of the display.
The one-click script command
8. Respond to Prompts
The script displays a menu offering the following options:
—————————————— 安装向导 —————————————— 0. 升级 脚本 1. 安装 V2Ray (Nginx+ws+tls) 2. 安装 V2Ray (http/2) 3. 升级 V2Ray core —————————————— 配置变更 —————————————— 4. 变更 UUID 5. 变更 alterid 6. 变更 port 7. 变更 TLS 版本(仅ws+tls有效) —————————————— 查看信息 —————————————— 8. 查看 实时访问日志 9. 查看 实时错误日志 10. 查看 V2Ray 配置信息 —————————————— 其他选项 —————————————— 11. 安装 4合1 bbr 锐速安装脚本 12. 安装 MTproxy(支持TLS混淆) 13. 证书 有效期更新 14. 卸载 V2Ray 15. 更新 证书crontab计划任务 16. 退出
In English, these options would read:
—————————————— Installation Wizard —————————————— 0. Upgrade script 1. Install V2Ray (Nginx+WS+TLS) 2. Install V2Ray (HTTP/2) 3. Upgrade V2Ray core —————————————— Configuration Change ————————————— 4. Change UUID 5. Change alterid 6. Change port 7.

Certificate validity period update 14. Uninstall V2Ray 15. Update certificate crontab scheduled task 16. Exit
For a beginner on a new server, choose option
1 to install V2Ray with an Nginx frontend and WS+TLS protocol.
The next question asks you to confirm that the server time clock is accurate within plus or minus 3 minutes. It uses Beijing time (CST).
请确认时间是否准确,误差范围±3分钟(Y/N) Please confirm that the time is accurate; the error range is ±3 minutes (Y/N)
Assuming it is correct, put
y for Yes and press Enter, like this:
Is the time ( CST ) correct?
Now you are asked to enter your fully qualified domain name, also known as your hostname. The example given in the prompt is
请输入你的域名信息(eg:www.wulabing.com): Please enter your domain information (e.g. www.wulabing.com):
Enter your FQDN, which in our example is
a.lizi.gq, and press Enter.
Enter fully qualified Domain
If the DNS resolution does not match the IP address of the server, you will see a warning. It asks you if you want to proceed.
请确保域名添加了正确的 A 记录，否则将无法正常使用 V2ray 域名dns解析IP 与 本机IP 不匹配 是否继续安装？ Please make sure the domain name has the correct A record, otherwise V2Ray will not work properly. The domain name DNS resolution IP does not match the local IP. Do you want to continue the installation?
If you are confident that the DNS resolution will be eventually be correct, you can type
yfor Yes, and press Enter.
DNS and Ip inconsistency
The next question asks on which port number your server will accept incoming connections.
请输入连接端口（default:443）: Please enter the connection port (default 443):
It is strongly recommended that you use the default port
443 as the connection port, since this is consistent with HTTPS port usage.
Port number defaults to 443
Now you are asked how many alternative IDs you want to use. This parameter is mainly used to enhance anti-detection capabilities. Theoretically, the larger the
alterId, the better, but the larger the value the more memory it uses on the server.
请输入alterID（default:2 仅允许填数字）: Please enter alterID (default 2, must be numeric):
It is recommended that you go with the suggested default of 2.
Alternative UDs defaults at 2
The script now goes ahead and builds the latest version of V2Ray direct from the source. This takes the most time, 10 minutes or so, depending on your server.
Toward the end, the script asks you which versions of Transport Layer Security (TLS) you want to support.
请选择支持的 TLS 版本（default:3）: 请注意,如果你使用 Quantaumlt X / 路由器 / 旧版 Shadowrocket / 低于 4.18.1 版本的 V2ray core 请选择 兼容模式 1:TLS1.1 TLS1.2 and TLS1.3（兼容模式） 2:TLS1.2 and TLS1.3 (兼容模式) 3:TLS1.3 onlyPlease select a supported TLS version (default 3): Please note that if you use Quantaumlt X / Router / Legacy Shadowrocket / V2ray core lower than 4.18.1 please select compatibility mode 1: TLS1.1 TLS1.2 and TLS1.3 (compatibility mode) 2: TLS1.2 and TLS1.3 (compatibility mode) 3: TLS1.3 only
TLS version 1.3 is the newest, but it is not supported by every possible client. To allow for a broader range of client devices, we will choose option
2. Press Enter.
Allow for TLS 1.2 and TLS 1.3
At the conclusion of the script, the URL import link (URL导入链接) is displayed. It begins with the characters
vmess:// as shown in the screenshot below displayed in red.
Completion display with vmess URL
If you lose the URL import link, you can redisplay it with the command:
cat ~/v2ray_info.infRedisplay vmess URL
Copy this entire URL beginning from
vmess:// and going to the end (
fQo= in our example) to your clipboard. We will import it into the client in a moment.
Mean while, notice that the script has created an Nginx website on your server in the directory
/home/wwwroot/3DCEList. If you visit your host in a browser (
https://a Climaxhub.gq in our example) you will see this website.
9. Install V2Ray Client
V2Ray needs accurate times on both server and client, so make sure the system time on your client device is correct.
Our screenshots come from using BifrostV on an Android device. Install BifrostV from Google Play Store or ApkPure.
(Clients for other devices are listed at https://v2ray.com/en/awesome/tools.html.)
In BifrostV, tap the plus sign at the top right of the screen to add a new V2Ray server profile. Select Import. Select Import from URL. Paste the URL from
vmess:// and going right to the very end from your clipboard. Tap OK.
Bifrostv import profile from URL
The new V2Ray server profile appears in your profile list. Tap the round button at the bottom right of your screen to connect.
Depending on which version of Android you are running, you will get a message saying that BifrostV is attempting to create a VPN connection. Check the box to say that you trust this application, and tap OK.
Attempt to connect
After a few seconds, the button at the bottom right of your screen turns a brighter color to indicate that you are now connected to that V2Ray server.
Connected button turns bright
10. End-to-End Test
Open a browser and visit https://www.iplocation.net.
You should see the location of your server, not the location of your client.
IP location is server location
11. Keep Your Server Up to Date
The script can generate a Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate for you that is valid for 90 days. Automatic renewal is theoretically possible with the automatically generated certificate. Every Sunday at 3 a.m., Nginx will automatically restart to allow the scheduled task of checking for certificate renewal to complete. Clients are unable to connect to the server during this time. The repair disruption is expected to last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. Updating the software on your server must be done manually. Log on to your server every a week or so and run the command:
apt update && apt upgrade -y
12. Get Support
If you have a problem, SSH into your server to take a look at the logs.
To view the V2Ray error log, enter the command:
To view the Nginx error log, enter the command:
