Creating a Project (Server Does Not Already Exist)

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


You are in the Managed Cloud Hosting > Projects > section.

Step 1

Enter the desired project name.

Step 2

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 have to carry out the following additional steps:

  • Choose the web server.

  • Choose the script language.

  • Choose the database.

Step 3

To create a new server to host your project, select the Create a server... option. Then select the desired configuration of the new server.

Step 4

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

Please note:  The shorter the geographical distance between your 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.

Step 5

Click Create.
