I've got a NextCloud instance running on Cloudamo, but they uh don't seem to encrypt data. Anyone have experience with The Good Cloud or Webo?
@maxeddy If you can administer your NextCloud install, you can go to "Security" and enable "Server Side Encryption".
"On the air encryption" may be a job to HTTPS...
@juliobiason Thank you! I'm looking at managed hosting at the moment, but I suspect that won't work out.
@maxeddy tbf I don't see the benefit of the "Server Side Encryption" feature. Just encrypt the file system or use the end-to-end encryption module/app for sensitive files.
@fll Interesting! The end-to-end app appears to not be available in most of these managed hosting options.
@maxeddy I'm not educated enough to know what "managed hosting" entails exactly, but if you just want to have a nextcloud instance for yourself and not use the server for anything else you could take a look at providers who host and rent out instances. Never looked at those myself but that might be an option: https://nextcloud.com/providers/
@fll Got it. That's the list I am working from at the moment.
@maxeddy Ahh ok. So they restrict you in the modules you can install? Not fun :(
Sorry for wasting your time then :P
I only ever self hosted it on a machine in my home. Not too bad to deal with updates and works nicely with LetsEncrypt and dyndns.
@fll Never a waste of time!
Forget that noise. Buy yourself an RPi4 with 4GB of RAM and host it @Home
@maxeddy Hetzner offers server side encryption starting at the 9€/m tier. Their NC hosting has been really solid over the last 10ish month https://www.hetzner.com/storage/storage-share/nx30
@maxeddy I haven't bothered to check out this nextcloud stuff. i use resiliosync for tons of things - lightroom catalogs, dotfiles for workstations (dotfiles.shared, dotfiles.queenmary, dotfiles.worklappie, etc.) and i generally trust apple and google with my calendar and contacts so i don't know what nextcloud is really great at! i also have a synology filer so that probably lowers my interest. should i check it out anyway?
