Get Started: Create Your First Account

Creating an account is the very first step of deploying cloud servers with LayerStack. Each account represents a single entity. By creating an account, you will be automatically assigned to the role of an Account Owner. This role grants the master account permission to deploy and manage your cloud servers, as well as billing information. There is no limit to the number of accounts created.

Account-Related Features

Many of our products and features are associated with the account. Services are not interchangeable between accounts.

Account Cancellation

To ensure that the billing records can only be accessible by the Account Owner, the account cannot be deactivated.

Roles and Permissions

From your account, you can assign different permission to different roles. Permission are user-level access rights to various features in the LayerPanel. The owner can assign roles for completing specific platform management tasks and accessing specific account resources.

Two Factor Authentication

LayerStack supports two-factor authentication (2FA) upon login as an additional security measure on the top of your password. When activated, the system will send you a login code via a third-party authenticator app on your smartphone, such as Google Authenticator.

The Account Owner needs to activate 2FA in Profile & Setting before proceeding to the account’s 2FA activation.
