Frequently asked questions

  • How do we keep your data secure with Hetzner Nextcloud?

    We handle the security for your Nextcloud in the same way as with our Storage Boxes. The Nextcloud file system can tolerate several simultaneous drive failures. As soon as we detect any irregularies with our drives, we will exchange them immediately, thereby further decreasing the chance of failure to a very low level.

    In addition, our Nextcloud file system checks the integrity of the data using checksums and automatically corrects errors. We've created high-availability cluster for the instance databases, making the chances of a complete failure very minimal. Finally, if you choose to synchronize your Nextcloud data with your own computer or device using client software, you will have an additional copy of your data.

  • What does the "unlimited" storage quota setting mean?

    An administrator can create users and limit their storage size. So you as an administrator, can set up storage space for your users that are, for example 5, 10, 50, or 100 GB. Or you can set up an "unlimited" sized space. However, this "unlimited" space will actually be limited by the overall storage quota size of the Nextcloud instance that you (the admin) have bought.

  • Can I use Nextcloud with my smartphone?

    Yes, there are Nextcloud apps for iOS and Android. You can download the apps at the following links.
    Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nextcloud.client
    iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/app/nextcloud/id1125420102?mt=8

    After starting the app of your choice, enter the server address. Then log in with your Hetzner Nextcloud user details.


  • Can I use server-side encryption with Nextcloud?

    Yes, Nextcloud already has this as a standard option. Before you enable server-side encryption, you need to first activate the "Default encryption module" in the app's menu. After you activate this module, you can tick the checkbox "Enable server-side encryption" under "Settings; Administration; Security; Server-side encryption". Please note that encrypting data requires more storage space and may result in slower speeds. In addition, only our support team can de-activate this feature.

  • Can I share my data with another user on a different server?

    Yes, you can share data between different servers using your Federated Cloud ID. You can find this Federated Cloud ID by clicking on your profile picture, going to "Settings" and then clicking on "Sharing". You will then see your Federated Cloud ID on the right-hand side. After this, you can open the share menu of the file you want to share, and on the line "Name, Federated Cloud ID or email address...". You can then enter the entire Federated Cloud ID. An example address will have a format that looks like this: "Admin@nx****.your-next.cloud".

  • Can Hetzner add the feature "x"?

    Unfortunately, we at Hetzner Online cannot add any features to Nextcloud since we have not developed this software ourselves. However, you can make a feature request by going to the official Github repository: https://github.com/nextcloud/server/
