Creating a new server


Bare Metal Cloud instances

Bare Metal Cloud instances are physical servers deployed automatically through our platform. We take care of the provisioning, Operating System installation, and configuration based on the settings you choose, and you receive access to your new server in 10 minutes.

To create a new Bare Metal Cloud instance, log in to the dashboard and click on Create server. You'll be taken to this page:

Here you're able to select the size and operating system of choice, as well as other options such as SSH keys and Custom scripts, and set up a hostname.

Access credentials

Once your server is deployed, we'll send you an email with the access credentials. If you chose to use an SSH key, no passwords will be sent.

If you didn't deploy with an SSH key, after logging into your server for the first time, you'll be prompted to change your password.

When deployment begins

For servers being charged monthly, deployment begins only after payment has been made. If you already have a payment method registered, you will be charged automatically. Learn more about automatic payment.
