Frequently asked questions

Can I personalize my cloud - own design, color, logo ?

Only with ADMIN packages. At Nextcloud you have the so-called "Theming" function.

Can I use my own domain ?

You can use your own domain at any time with Admin packages. You can either order one, or use an already existing one. Of course, you can also use an external domain or subdomain whenever you want. Simply set an A-record on our server IP at your registrar/DNS provider and you can access the cloud. EXCEPT in SINGLE Packages.


How are updates carried out ?

Before a ready-made release we test the latest RC versions very carefully. New installations, migrations, updates and many more are always tested extensively by our technicians. After release we update our customers' clouds as quickly as possible.

Can I use encryption ?

One important encryption, SSL ( encrypted connection from you to the server ), is pre-installed by us, so your connection to your cloud is safe from the very first moment. The encryption app is very useful if you use external storage.

This is possible at any time. Of course, you can also use other synchronizing tools, such as goodsync, cyberduck,... . Sync programs by Nextcloud und ownCloud are recommended.


Unlimited users/groups and own apps in ADMIN packages ?

That's right. You can set unlimited user and groups, as well as use all available apps. The only exception are apps which require separate services, such as for example Collabora, Stun/Turn or SolR. These require separate software/service installation and are only available with addon. Along with the addon you receive your own server, which works for you only, and which has Collabora and Stuf/Turn pre-installed with a shortcut to your cloud.
