Creating Projects

This explains how to create new Cloud projects and switch between existing ones.


You can think of a Project in Cloud as your own hosted instance of LiveKit server. A LiveKit Cloud account can own or be a member of multiple projects. Billing and analytics data are scoped to a specific project.

Create a project

If you sign up for LiveKit Cloud directly (i.e. without being invited to a project by someone else), we'll ask you to create your first project:

Create cloud project

The subdomain you choose for your project must be unique and contain only letters, numbers and dashes. You'll use this address later as a host string when creating or connecting to rooms and/or other LiveKit Cloud services.

Multiple projects

If you've already created a project, or created your LiveKit Cloud account via an invitation to a project created by someone else, you can create another project using the project switcher in the bottom left corner. You can also use this same control to switch between different project dashboards:


There's a typical pattern in software development to have multiple development environments, like local, staging, and production. In Cloud, this is best accomplished by creating three separate projects.
