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 Control and click on New Server. You'll be taken to this page:

On this page, you'll be able to select the size and operating system of choice, as well as SSH keys, and setting up a hostname.

Access credentials

Once your server is deployed, we'll send you an email notifying that the server is ready for use.

There'll be a link that'll take you to Control, where you'll find the server's IP, username and password credentials. These credentials will be available for 72 hours. If you don't get the credentials before that, you'll have to reinstall the server.

For security reasons, 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.

If you don't have a payment method, you'll have to manually pay the generated invoice. Learn more about how to pay your invoices manually.
