Instructions to install


  • you'd need API key on Namecheap (if you want to automatically buy and configure domain name)


These instructions depend a bit on your cloud provider.

Digital Ocean

  1. Install doctl
  2. Issue the following command:
doctl compute droplet create --user-data-file ./user_data --wait --ssh-keys $KEY_ID --size 1gb --region lon1 --image coreos-stable

Provider with user_data support

If you use a cloud provider that support user_data, like Scaleway, just use this user_data.


You can also buy a baremetal at Hetzner as they are the cheapest options around. Follow these instructions in this case.

Provider without user_data support

Use boot a live cd, and issue that command:

bash coreos-install -d /dev/sda -c user_data

And voila, your first node is ready!
