Forked from OwnCloud in 2016, NextCloud is an excellent option for deploying your own secure cloud collaboration platform.
NextCloud has file sharing & synchronisation from multiple devices, similar to services like Dropbox & Google Drive, but private & more secure.
Secure voice, text & video calls are also built-in, with the ability to invite guest users via a project room specific URL.
Running a private NextCloud server ensures that your information is not analysed by data mining companies like Google, Microsoft, etc. when using their services.
Some feature include:
Easy file sharing
Centralised backup of your files
Multiple device support (desktop, phone, etc.)
Automated file & folder synchronisation
Group communication (text, video & audio)
Shared & private calendars/contacts
Send & receive email

Included with all the Nextcloud Simple Hosting plans
Select your domain name, choose a name for your website, and the rest is done automatically for you. You just need to confirm the security email that we send you, and you'll have a Nextcloud platform ready to go.
Security: Free SSL certificate
With S+ instances or higher, you can generate free SSL certificates in order to secure data transmission and reassure your website visitors. Learn more about certificates
Stay in control of your data
You are administrator of the platform and can decide how you want to share your files. You can delegate permissions by user management tools or by a shared link for less-sensitive files.
Linked to your domain name
Having your Nextcloud platform at Gandi, along with your domain names, allows us to automatically link them together. With the linking done for you, the platform will be accessible in no time at all.
Take advantage of the many apps that you can add to extend the possibilities given, such as shared calendars or integrated chat.
You can use Nextcloud mobile apps available from your device's app store to access your files and synchronize photos and documents with those on your smartphone.
Change the power of your hosting (from S+ to XXL) on the fly, by just clicking on a button. It is easy to meet the needs of a temporary or permanent increase in traffic.
Add up to 1TB of additional storage to your instance.
Hosted in France
Gandi's datacenters are located in France and in Luxembourg. By default, Nextcloud Simple hosting installations are deployed in France.
