🎉 Announcing new lower pricing — up to 40% lower costs for Cloud Servers and Cloud SQL! Read more →


Cloud Servers

Cloud Servers are individual virtual machine instances, created from a specific Image and of a specific Server Type, belonging to an Account.


Cloud Server usage is billed by the hour from the moment they are created until they are destroyed. Servers in both active and inactive state are billed for. Billing only stops when a server is deleted.


By default, each Cloud Server has a private IPv4 address and a block of IPv6 addresses. Additional public addresses can be added and removed to them using the Cloud IP functionality. More information can be found in the network reference.

Cloud Servers have a number of dns records associated with them.


Access to and from Cloud Servers can be controlled using the Cloud Firewall.

Load Balancing

Cloud Servers can be added as backends to Load Balancers.
