  4. Select the cloud provider of your choice and select the cloud region on which you want to run your service.


    The pricing for the same service may vary between providers and regions. The service summary on the right side of the console shows you the pricing for your selected options.

  5. Next, select the service plan.

  6. Enter a name for your service.


    A random name is provided by default, but you can enter a more recognizable name to distinguish it from other services. You cannot change the name of the service once it is created.

While services typically start up in a couple of minutes, the performance varies between cloud providers and regions, and it may take longer in some circumstances.
