Managing your server: deleting your Cloud Server

When you are done using your server and are ready to delete it, you can do this through the Cloud Control Panel.  If you have already saved a backup image of your server you can use that image to create a new server at a future time.  That server will be an exact clone of your current server at the time the backup image was saved, only it will have a different IP address.

  • To delete the server, click its gear menu and choose Delete Server.

  • You will be asked for confirmation before the server and its data are deleted forever. 
  • All together, these administration tips and tools will allow you total control over your server, as well as provide some great troubleshooting resources.  Next we are going to learn how to build and configure a Cloud Load Balancer for directing traffic to multiple servers in a high availability solution.  For detailed instructions, read the article on Configuring a Load Balancer.
