Before you can create a PlanetScale Database, you must first create a cluster. This document explains how to create a cluster for your PlanetScale Database using the PlanetScale console.
To create a PlanetScale cluster, you will complete the following steps:
When you create a PlanetScale.com account, you are prompted to create a cluster. You can also access this view by going to console.planetscale.com/clusters.
After clicking Create Cluster, you are prompted to name your cluster.
The name of your cluster is prepended with your account name, and must be unique.
In the Regions dropdown menu, select the cloud provider and region where your cluster will be located.
When you have selected a name and region for your cluster, click Create Cluster.
Now that you have a cluster, you can create a database.
