Migration to a higher offer is possible and free of charge: in the Accounts menu for plans in the public Cloud or by contacting support to switch to another environment.

A well optimized application will have the same performances regardless its environment type. However less users on a server bring more stability and comfort (no more performance variations due to other users).


  1. Hence, users do not have root rights and cannot use sudo. Many services can be directly installed at the account level and VPS and dedicated users can request support for services where this is not the case. ↩︎

  2. The public Cloud free plan offers 100Mb of disk space for non-commercial use. ↩︎

  3. Daily backups, retained for 30 days and directly available in the account ↩︎
