Q: What are VPCs again?

A: A VPC is a collection of members and servers. Each VPC has its own subnet allocated to it. That VPC must have a billing member assigned to it, and that billing member must have a valid credit card on their profile. VPCs are used for servers to talk to one another without the need for a public IP address.

A: You can't do this on the dashboard, but > get in touch with us and we're sure to accomodate.
