This article explains what information is listed in the Costs > Usage section of the Cloud Panel.

In the Usage section, the usage time of the servers and public IP addresses you set up is listed in a table.

Showing the Usage Section

  • Log in to your IONOS account.
  • In the title bar, click Menu > Server & Cloud. If you have multiple server contracts, select the one you want to view.

  • In the navigation bar on the left, click Costs > Usage.

  • The cost overview does not take into account discounts and special promotions. The displayed time is given as coordinated universal time (UTC).

  • On the Invoice Overview page, in the Individual Invoices tab, you can download your individual invoices from the last 2 years in PDF format. For more information on downloading invoices, please see the article Downloading invoices at IONOS.

  • Invoices from IONOS are always automatically sent to the email address you have specified in your contact details. If you have saved a secondary email address for receiving invoices in your customer details, a copy of your invoices and payment-related information will automatically be sent to this additional email address. This gives you the option of having your invoices and payment-related information sent to two different email addresses at the same time.

  • If you want to receive your invoices as an email attachment, we need your consent. You can find out how to do this in the article Downloading invoices at IONOS.

  • You can also find more information about the structure of your IONOS invoices in the article Structure of the IONOS Invoices.
