Stress-free admin and security

Choosing Managed Nextcloud from IONOS saves you time and effort from the start. Installation is much simpler than with self-hosted Nextcloud, so you don't need any tech expertise to get set up. You'll also have less to think about once you're up and running, as we'll take care of all system updates.
Data privacy concerns are also a thing of the past. Managed Nextcloud gives you full control over who accesses what. Customise access rights to your needs, and monitor and log all activities. This makes it easier to adhere to compliance guidelines, and also simplifies reporting and auditing.

Managed Nextcloud

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

Nextcloud is open source cloud software that is primarily used as cloud storage, but can be flexibly expanded with various features for communication, security and productivity.

With Nextcloud, you can back up and synchronise your files automatically and, if necessary, data from other users in the cloud. You can access data and/or business apps in the cloud from any location and from any device – whether on a smartphone, tablet, desktop PC or laptop. It’s also possible to set up individual sharing and access rights that can be configured and customised.

In addition to the wide range of possible uses, one major difference compared to other cloud storage – such as Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive – is the protection of your data. With Nextcloud, you keep control over your data and your privacy. If you opt for Managed Nextcloud Hosting from IONOS, your data will be stored in European data centres where strict data protection regulations apply.

Managed Nextcloud hosting from IONOS provides you with GDPR compliant data storage as well as strict European data security and other services. This flexible and secure data storage is suitable for companies, institutions and associations, as well as for self-employed and private individuals.

If you have the appropriate technical knowledge, you can also host Nextcloud yourself. With the Managed Nextcloud Hosting solution, however, the administrative side will be taken care of for you.

By choosing Nextcloud hosting from IONOS, you can be sure that all your data is secure and compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The data is stored exclusively on servers in EU data centres and is therefore subject to strict data protection laws. IONOS does not compromise on quality, security and performance.

You can set up Managed Nextcloud Hosting with just a few clicks. We take care of cloud updates and the entire infrastructure so you don’t have to worry about any security risks due to outdated versions. You don't need to think about whether the correct PHP or MySQL version is installed or whether the configuration files are structured correctly. You don't need to obtain SSL encryption certificates for HTTPS connections, nor do you need to update them. We make sure that the server’s operating systems are up to date, the firewall is configured correctly and your Nextcloud is up to speed.

Managed Nextcloud Hosting from IONOS is a highly reliable and secure Nextcloud hosting solution. Your data belongs to you and you alone, which means that no one else can access it unless you deliberately share files. Thanks to extensive configuration options, you can define access rights precisely and individually – according to each user’s needs and their role. For example, you can set up time-limited passwords for data sharing or define customised access rights for reading, writing and sharing data. Nextcloud also provides the option of video calls to share your data. Instead of sending the password via email or chat, the recipient must start a video call to request the password from you. This innovative method allows you to verify the identity of the person before you give out the password.

With IONOS, all your data is stored in compliance with the GDPR. This also applies to cloud data. Our Nextcloud servers are located exclusively in our state-of-the-art data centres in Europe and are subject to strict data protection laws. Unlike with many other cloud hosting services, your data will not be transferred to other countries where comparable high data protection standards are often not in place.

We ensure that your cloud is always kept up to date from a technical perspective. You do not have to deal with any maintenance or system updates. This way security risks caused by outdated installations can be avoided.

Once you've decided on Managed Nextcloud Hosting and want to set up your private cloud, you first need to select a suitable package. You can then begin the Nextcloud installation directly in your customer account with just one click. You’re now able to start creating users, using Nextcloud data, or communicating right away. In the app store, you will find numerous apps that enable you to expand Nextcloud’s range of functions and adapt it to your needs.

Meanwhile, IONOS takes care of all administrative tasks, performs all updates, and handles your Nextcloud setup. You can get started right away.

If your data has been stored with another provider, such as Google, OneDrive or similar, you do not have to migrate it immediately. You can add other cloud storage to Nextcloud and then access all of your existing data in one interface.

You’ll notice the first benefit of Managed Nextcloud as soon as you install it – no programming skills are required. After purchasing, you choose your desired domain and create the first user. You can then get started right away. For more information, read the "How do I install Nextcloud?" section of this FAQ. Once you've installed Nextcloud, IONOS will take care of all system updates. You're only responsible for updating the Nextcloud apps that you've selected.

Self-hosted Nextcloud is particularly suitable for customers with a high level of technical expertise who want to define every detail, take care of regular maintenance and carry out all necessary updates themselves.

Tip: You can also install Nextcloud yourself on a cloud server from IONOS and extend the functions of Nextcloud anytime via the apps. Within your hosting contract, you can use as many free apps as you like. Please note the minimum requirements when selecting a server.

With Managed Nextcloud Hosting, you can enjoy all the benefits and features of Nextcloud without the administrative effort or technical expertise. You can back up your data, synchronise it automatically, and organise and transfer photos, videos and other data in no time at all. The data transfer is completely encrypted. IONOS operates your Managed Nextcloud in European data centres in compliance with the highest security standards. We take care of regular maintenance and all necessary system updates. Nevertheless, you are always in full control of your Nextcloud and your data. Who you grant access to is entirely up to you.

Small to medium-sized companies and larger teams that need secure, functional and convenient data storage as the basis of their collaboration platform choose Managed Nextcloud. Nextcloud Hosting from IONOS is also suitable for private individuals as well as for companies, institutions and associations who want to move their local file server to the cloud.

In short, Managed Nextcloud Hosting is an ideal, affordable and professional collaborative storage solution for small and medium-sized businesses and larger teams that don't want to hire extra IT specialists to set up and maintain their Nextcloud server. As an experienced hosting provider IONOS takes care of all this for you so that you can devote more time to what is important to you.
