Directus Cloud is a hosting platform for Directus Projects which handles data storage, hosting, updates and scalability so you can focus on building your digital apps and experiences. There are three tiers of Cloud Projects: Community, Standard and Enterprise. All three tiers come with all the great features of Directus Core, as well as all Cloud Exclusive extensions.

The Cloud Dashboard is constructed to manage three key components: Accounts, Teams and Projects. First, create an Account. Once logged in, create or join a Team, and your Account will become a Member of that Team. Once that's complete, you can create Projects within a Team.

Accounts can be Members on multiple Teams. All Team Members have SuperAdmin privileges to manage the Team's Projects, Project billing, other Team Members and the Team itself. Teams can have multiple Team Members and multiple Projects. Projects can only be managed by one Team and cannot be transferred to new Teams.

Getting Started

To make life easy, you have the option to create and login to your free Cloud Account automatically with GitHub. If you don't have a GitHub account or prefer not to use this login method, email-and-password login is available, as well. Once logged in, create a new Team or select an existing Team. Then you can access and manage the Team's associated Projects, billing details, Team Members, Activity and Settings.

Remember: The Dashboard layout itself is designed to manage Accounts, Teams and Projects. Here's how the Dashboard layout relates to each of these components:
