Click on the API tab to generate a new API or select an existing one. Now, hit the ‘Generate API token’, give a description (xCloud, for example), and select the permission as ‘Read & Write’. While generating a New API key, we always recommend you select the ‘Read & Write’ permission.

Now, go back to xCloud dashboard to create a new server with Hetzner. Select your existing server or create a new account. Then, set an API label as you prefer. The label can be anything to help you track or remember a particular one from multiple tokens. After that, paste the API token that you have copied from the Hetzner on the token field.

We recommend at least a 2GB/ 1 shared CPU server for 10-20 brochure sites with cache enabled. And for a site whose pages cannot be cached (e.g. WooCommerce site) we recommend a 4 GB / 2 dedicated CPUs server.

We are almost done with our server creation of Hetzner in xCloud. After submitting the form this might take up to 10-15 minutes to make the Hetzner server live and ready to install a lightning-fast WordPress Site.

xCloud will automatically add a firewall with three ports on the Hetzner end. We recommend not to remove this firewall.
