Using your own servers with Cloud 66

About registered servers

Registered servers are a great way for operations teams to manage and allocate physical server resources for consumption by dev teams. Registered servers are essentially a pool of your own servers on a private or public cloud that can be used on any application and configuration. Applications can be deployed across a hybrid of cloud and registered servers - in this way you could have a dedicated server for your database and burst cloud servers for your front end.

Register a server

You can add any physical server as a registered server using the website, or the Cloud 66 toolbelt as long as it meets certain criteria.


Visit the Registered Servers page on Cloud 66, which will provide with you a shell script to run on your server - you can download it to inspect it first.

Once the shell script has successfully completed, the server will now show up in the New Servers list for you to approve. Once it is approved, it will be available for you to use on any application!


The script generated by the URL is not the same and is time sensitive, so you can’t save the script itself on your server.

Cloud 66 Toolbelt

You can run the command below to register your servers using the toolbelt:

$ cx register-server --org="My Team" --file=servers_file --user=root

To register a single server, use the server flag with the IP address, and to bulk register, provide a text file with the file flag with one IP address per line.

To add tags to the registered servers, use the tags option:

$ cx register-server --org="My Team" --server= --user=root --tags="dc-1,az US"
