Servers

Server deletion settings

By default, Cloud 66 will not delete servers and other objects created in your cloud after you delete the application. However, you can change this setting.

If you go to the Settings & Information page and select Remove physical servers when a Cloud 66 server is deleted?, then when you delete a server, load balancer, or even a whole application, related objects in the cloud will be deleted as well.

Server deletion delays

Physical server deletion is not instant; it can take up to 24 hours for the removal to occur (depending on your cloud provider).

Cloud 66 creates different objects depending on which cloud provider you use. For some clouds, Cloud 66 creates items at the account level, which will not be deleted after application deletion. You should clear them manually if you don't need them for other applications anymore.
