For Cloud Servers and Dedicated Servers (Managed in the IONOS Cloud Panel)

In this article, we'll show you how to delete your cloud or dedicated servers from within the Cloud Panel.

Once you delete a server, all of its data and associated backups will be permanently deleted.

Please Note

If you are trying to delete a Virtual Private Server (VPS), you will instead need to cancel your Virtual Private Server (VPS) contract.

The Delete button as described in the instructions below will appear greyed out for virtual servers.


You are in the Infrastructure > Servers section of the Cloud Panel.

  • Select the desired server.

  • Click Actions > Delete.

    A security warning appears.

  • Confirm the security warning and click Yes.

The server will now begin deleting. This process may take a few minutes.
