Delete the Virtual Server

To delete the virtual server follow these steps:

Once a virtual server is removed, it can't be restored unless you have a backup stored in our Cloud.

  1. Select the Tools button near the top of the screen.
    Click on the Green Tools Button Near the Top Right of the Screen
  2. A number of different options will appear in a drop-down below the Tools button. Near the bottom, select Delete virtual server.
    Click Delete Virtual Server
  3. A new box will appear. If you have saved backups for this virtual server, you will be asked what you want to do with the backups (the default is to delete all of the backups along with the virtual server itself). You can choose to turn the most recent backup into a template so you can deploy a new virtual server based on that backup in the future or you can choose to only remove certain backups (or none at all). Click Destroy and confirm to schedule deletion of the virtual server.
    If you Have any Backups you will be Asked What to do with Them. Click Destroy to Detele the VM
  4. You will be taken back to the main virtual server screen where you can wait for the machine to be destroyed.

Congratulations, you've deleted a Cloud server in HostDime's Cloud!
