1. Start by clicking the Wizard button in the Control Panel. Click Create Kubernetes Cluster.

  2. Choose the default configuration for your worker nodes, which determines their RAM, vCPUs, and price. If you need more than three worker nodes, click the (+) Plus sign on the card.

  3. Confirm the network topology. If you have more than one Private Network, you can select the one you want. By default, each cluster is assigned an address and is reachable via the Internet. If you wish for the cluster to be reachable only internally, uncheck the IPv4 checkbox.

  4. Name your cluster and click on Finish. Deploying the cluster takes a few minutes.

  5. Download the cluster configuration file by clicking the (•••) More button and then Download Kube-Config.

  6. Once the cluster is created, use kubectl, the official Kubernetes command-line tool, to connect and interact with the cluster. If you prefer an intuitive graphical interface, then the free third-party tool Lens is right for you.
