Frequently asked questions

Here you will find answers to the questions we most commonly hear from people who are wondering if Umbraco Cloud is the right fit for their project. The answers you will find here are of a more technical nature and are directed at developers.

If you are interested in more general information about the product, you should visit the FAQ on our website.

General

Can I try before I pay?

Yes, you can take a free trial of Umbraco Cloud and test it for 14 days with no obligation to buy.

Is it a special version of Umbraco that’s used?

No. It's the same as the latest version of Umbraco that you can download.

Can I run my high-traffic site on Umbraco Cloud?

Currently, we have benchmarked a "well-built" site with approximately 50,000 unique visitors per day (~1.5 million per month) that performs very well. For business-critical, high-traffic sites, we recommend that you look into Umbraco Cloud Professional and Umbraco Cloud Enterprise possibly in combination with a dedicated server.

Can my site auto-scale or use dedicated worker resources?

Your site can't currently auto-scale, but it is something we’re investigating as a future feature. We do offer dedicated worker resources. Reach out to us if you want to know more.

Can I set up a load-balanced Umbraco Cloud site?

Not currently.

Can I move my site from Umbraco Cloud?

Yes, you can. Umbraco Cloud uses the very same Umbraco version that you can download and use on your own. So if you decide that Umbraco Cloud isn’t right for you or your sites then you can clone your site, restore your data locally, and delete your Umbraco Cloud project. We’ll be sad to see you go, but we understand there is a huge variety in requirements so we support and encourage you to choose the best solution for your specific site needs.

Can I move my existing site to Umbraco Cloud?

Umbraco Cloud is best when used as the base for a new project. There is a specific way of working with Umbraco and Umbraco Cloud in order to take full advantage of the service. That’s not to say you can’t migrate an existing site, only that some changes may be required in order for your site to fully work with Umbraco Cloud. For more information read our guide to moving an existing site.
