Create a project 

Projects are goal-oriented containers for the Cloud resources within which you can create instances, volumes, networks, and other resources you need. 

Every user already has a default project created automatically. This project cannot be deleted.  To create a new project, click the Create project button in the Projects tab. 


Enter a name and description of the project and click Create project.

Important! The Name and Description field lengths can be from 3 to 63 characters. Lowercase Latin letters, numbers, and hyphens are allowed. Name and Description should not end with a hyphen. 


The amount of your project doesn't affect the service price directly. Payment is calculated based on the resources used in the projects.

You can Open each project, go to its Settings or Delete it. To do this, click the three points icon next to the project you want to manage.
