A subnetwork is a range of IP addresses in a cloud network. Addresses from this range will be assigned to machines in the cloud.
There are two ways to create a subnet in the network:
While creating a subnet (with any method), you need to specify the address range in the CIDR format in the drop-down window.
The subnet size is set using the classless addressing (CIDR) method. Only private IPv4 addresses can be used in subnets.
Acceptable CIDR ranges:
A routed network is a private network that is already connected to a router with a public interface. All virtual servers in such networks can access the Internet through the router and accept incoming connections.
By default, a subnet in the cloud is created with Internet access (routable).
If you need to restrict machines from external connections, you need to enable the non-routable Subnetwork option while creating a subnet.
You can see the list of subnets in the created network in the section Networking → Networks.
Editing a name
To rename a subnet, click the selector on the right from the selected subnet and select Edit.
In the drop-down window, you can change the name of the created subnet.
Deleting a subnet
To delete a subnet, click the selector on the right from the selected subnet and click Delete.
