Frequently Asked Questions about Cloud Servers

What is a Cloud Server?

A cloud server is a virtualized private server with dedicated resources. These resources include CPU Cores, RAM, and Disk Space, and you can fully use them at any time.

You can easily add resources to a cloud server, making them more scalable than dedicated servers. Our cloud servers come with the Hostwinds Cloud Control Portal, allowing full access to a vast array of management and customization tools.

Will you help me migrate from my old provider to Hostwinds?

We will happily migrate your content from your previous provider on any new service ordered with Hostwinds.

Please submit a ticket requesting the migration and provide our migration experts with the required credentials to perform the transfer. We will review the migration and create a migration game plan tailored to your unique requirements. Upon completing the migration, our quality assurance team will review every aspect to ensure that it is ready to be presented to you. You will then confirm the migration and ensure everything is working to your standards.

Once approved by you, we will assist you with any necessary steps to finalize your migration to Hostwinds.

Do I have full control of my Cloud Server?

Root access is provided for any Hostwinds Linux Cloud Server, and full administrator access is provided for any Hostwinds Windows Cloud Server, both granting you full access to your server and the ability to configure it however you like.

Hostwinds believes in providing you with as many options as possible, and, as such, we allow you to either fully customize your server right out of the box or simply get up and running with the Operating System installed for you.

Does my Cloud Server come with a management control panel?

We have built an incredibly user-friendly Cloud Control Portal to give our clients several tools to manage every aspect of their cloud server. This includes features such as DNS Management, Firewall Management, Volume Storage Management, creation of Snapshots, ability to deploy Load Balancers on demand, IPv4 and IPv6 Management, Object Storage containers, and a robust API.

To review an abundance of features offered in the Cloud Portal, check out our Cloud Control guide within the Hostwinds Product Documentation.
