Creating a new application on Acquia Cloud

If you have a paid Acquia Cloud Professional subscription, you can create a new application in your subscription. You must be an Owner or Administrator to create a new application using the Acquia Cloud interface. You can also create an Acquia Cloud Free subscription at any time.

If you have an Acquia Cloud Enterprise subscription, contact Acquia Support to create a new application.

The number of applications that you can create in your subscription depends on your subscription level. For more information, see Acquia Cloud Pricing.

To create a new application, complete the following steps:

  1. Sign in to the Acquia Cloud interface.

  2. On the Applications page, click Add Application.

    Click the Add Application button|

    The Add Application page opens.

    • The first character must be alphabetic (a-z) and cannot be numeric
