Thank you for using Tencent Cloud VPC. VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) can help you build an independent network space at Tencent Cloud, which allows you to customize IP address ranges, IP address, routing policies, etc. You can also establish a VPN tunnel through Internet/Direct Connect to interconnect VPC with your other cloud resources and deploy hybrid cloud flexibly. You can perform such operations as creating a VPC and creating a subnet with the APIs described in this document. For information on supported operations, please see API Overview. Before using these APIs, please make sure that you have a thorough understanding of VPC Product Description and Operation Guide.

Getting Started

Take the following steps to quickly create a VPC:

  1. Create a VPC and its subnets You can use the API Create VPC to create a VPC and its subnets. After creation, the system creates a default route table and directs the subnets to the default route table.

  2. Purchase VPC servers After the subnets are created, you can use the API Create Instance to purchase VPC CVMs. These CVMs may come with no public IPs, and we can use the public gateway as a unified egress.

  3. (Optional) Purchase a NAT gateway If the CVMs purchased come with no public IPs, you can use the API "Create NAT Gateway" to purchase a NAT gateway which can be used as an egress for external access by the CVMs in the VPC.

  4. (Optional) Modify the route table In the subnet that needs to access the Internet, you can modify the route table policy by using the API Modify Route Table, and create a routing policy to direct the next hop of the destination IP address range that requires external access to the public gateway.
