FibaCloud Instances are Linux-based virtual machines (VMs) running on virtualized hardware. Every Instance you create is a new server that you can use independently or as part of a larger, cloud-based infrastructure.

Terminating an Instance causes it to delete snapshots, backups and disks.

Terminate a Instance with the API

How to terminate a Instance using the FibaCloud REST API
To terminate a Instance using the FibaCloud REST API, follow these steps:
  1. Submit a POST request with the following parameters.
  • immediate parameters: set to false to terminate service at the end of billing date, true - terminate immediately.
  • reason parameters: type your reason for cancellation.
curl --request POST \
--url{service_id}/cancel \
--header 'Authorization: Basic <credentials>' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{
"immediate": "string",
"reason": "string"

FibaCloud Instances are charged hourly. In this way, the time you use from your payment period will be charged, and the unused time will be returned to your account as a credit.
