Creating a Project (Server Does Not Already Exist)

To create projects with Managed Cloud Hosting, you need a project server. The project server provides the necessary resources for your projects. Resource distribution is automatic. If there is no project server in the Managed Cloud Hosting area, you can create this at any time when creating your first project. Proceed as follows:

  • Log in to IONOS and click on MENU then Server & Cloud. If necessary, select the desired contract.

  • In the Managed Cloud Hosting > Projects area, click Create.

  • Enter the desired project name.

  • Select a project type.

Type Description
Pre-installed application Pre-installed applications contain a pre-installed version of the particular application. They are preconfigured and optimized for the particular application.
Custom stacks You can configure custom stacks as you wish. You can select script languages, frameworks, web servers and databases to meet your individual preferences and needs.
Please note

If you create a project with a pre-installed application, you alone are responsible for updating the application.

To create a custom stack, you need to carry out the following additional steps:

  • Choose the web server.

  • Choose the script language.

  • Choose the database.

  • To create a project server to host your project, select the Create a project server... option. You can then select the desired configuration of the new project server.

  • Select the data center where you want to host the project server.

Please note

The shorter the geographical distance between your project servers and your users or visitors, the shorter the loading times will be. Therefore, we recommend selecting a IONOS data center that is located as close as possible to your users/visitors.

  • Click Create.
