Delete a project

Last updated 6th December 2019


When you no longer need your Public Cloud project, you can delete it directly from the OVHcloud Control Panel.

When you delete your Public Cloud project, a final invoice will be created for the remainder of what you owe.

Please note that deleting a project is not the same thing as deactivating your Public Cloud instances. When you delete a project, the resources contained in it will be destroyed. This action can not be undone.

This guide will show you how to delete a Public Cloud project.



First, log in to the OVHcloud Control Panel and click the Public Cloud menu.

Then, click in Project settings below Project Management.
