Features offered by the IONOS Cloud

Miscellaneous & service

Pay-as-you-use with no minimum contract period

Pay only for what you use: per-minute billing of your selected configuration. The package price is prorated to the minute after deletion of a server. Billing is monthly, at the end of a billing period. There is no minimum contract period, so you can cancel the contract at any time.

Multiple servers

Run several servers on one contract.

Server can be set up in 55 seconds

Servers are ready to go in just 55 seconds thanks to our high-performance cloud.

Data center location

You can pick the location of the data center for your project server at no extra charge.


Block storage

Load balancing

Spread your data/request rates over several servers to ensure consistently fast access times for visitors to your website.

Shared memory

Set up shared memory to let your servers swap information via NFS or CIFS protocols—just $7.20/month for 100 GB (per minute billing).
