Quick Bundle Servers

Quick Bundle Servers are preconfigured server packages with an associated hourly rate for the package. Quick Bundles cannot be customized, but if you create a custom server, it will appear in the Quick Bundles Menu as the "Last Purchased Server Configuration". This makes the recreation of that server a snap.

Last Purchased Server Configuration

The Last Purchased Server Configuration is added to the Quick Bundle selection menu after a custom server has been created. This allows you to skip the server creation wizard to quickly and easily recreate a server with the same exact specifications.

Launching Quick Bundles

Quick Bundles can be viewed by selecting the banner at the top of the Cloud by IX Product Dashboard. Upon selecting the launch option on a Quick Bundle server, that server will initiate provisioning on your account. Quick Bundle servers will launch with the Quick Bundle name, but the name can be modified by editing the server configuration after provisioning.

Why so few Quick Bundles?

There are a limited number of Quick Bundle server configurations available. You can easily create your own custom server configuration by selecting the Servers Menu on the left and then Add Server button in the upper right.

Quick Bundle Password

If the Quick Bundle configuration has a root password it will be displayed after the server has finished provisioning in a pop-up message. You may receive a warning regarding the root password if you navigate outside of the Cloud by IX Product Section of the control panel. To reset your password, the Quick Bundle server must be stopped from the Servers Page:

After the server is stopped, select the server and reset the password.

The number of active alerts will be displayed on the left. System announcements can be selected to review the entire notification.

Usage Balance Summary

Usage Balance Summary displays the current usage and the usage for the last 7 days. If your account is setup with Incremental Billing, it will display the Charge Threshold amount. This is the amount to be charged when the usage amount meets or exceeds the Charge Threshold.

If your account is set to Deposit Billing, the Usage Balance Summary will display your Usage Amount, Deposit Amount, and Usage for the last 7 days. Your usage is deducted from the deposit amount daily.

Current Usage is calculated daily. On Deposit Billing, this will often read $0.00 until the usage is calculated for the current day. The date and time of the most recent server usage calculation can be found at the top of the usage summary.
