FAQ

How am I billed for my instances?

All servers on your account are billed hourly up to the monthly rate cap. The hourly rate is determined by dividing the monthly rate by 672 hours (28 days). If your server is online for more than 672 hours in a calendar month, you will only be billed the monthly rate. Accumulated charges are invoiced to your account on the 1st of every month.

Do you charge for stopped bare metal servers?

Yes, servers in a "stopped" state continue to reserve the machine for your use and therefore incur charges until you release this server. If you wish to no longer accumulate charges for a server, please use the DESTROY button in the customer portal.

How do bare metal instances differ from compute instances?

Bare Metal instances offer direct access to dedicated servers with no noisy neighbors. Compared to compute instances which are deployed in a virtualized cloud environment, bare metal grants you unrestricted access to the underlying physical servers making these servers suitable for even the most resource intensive workloads.

What operating system templates do you offer?

See our full list of operating systems.

Which cloud features does bare metal currently support?

Vultr Bare Metal supports a wide range of our Vultr cloud features, including all stock operating system images, one click apps, startup scripts, and SSH key preloading. Certain features - including snapshots, custom ISOs, additional IPs, and private networking - are currently not available. More features will be added in the near future, so stay tuned!
