Creation and Scaling

Rapid Setup

Go from checkout to live in just minutes with our XS, S, and M shared cloud platforms. For our L, XL, and 2XL dedicated cloud platforms, setup is less than 3 hours.

Auto Scaling

Increase the number of additional concurrent users you need automatically based on defined algorithms. Not sure if you need Auto Scaling? We’ll cover your first day of spikes, then simply opt-in and only pay for the resources you use.

Instant Upgrades and Downgrades

Move between different shared or dedicated Nexcess platforms in an instant. All you need to do is confirm your choice through the Nexcess Client Portal and the automated transfer will begin.

Choose From Multiple Applications

We install and provide support for Magento, WooCommerce, WordPress, ExpressionEngine, CraftCMS, and OroCRM.

There is no specific relationship, sponsorship, endorsement, or affiliation between Nexcess and Magento, WordPress, WooCommerce, OroCRM, and Craft or the creators of said applications.


Nexcess Owned and Operated Data Center

Nexcess owns and operates the data center your website is stored in, meaning we can provide the best in terms of control, security, and management.

Fully SSD with RAID

When it comes to cloud storage, our data centers use SSDs and RAID in order to make sure your website isn’t restricted by slower or faulty hardware. It’s fast, reliable, and safe.

Nexcess LAMP Stack

Stay secure and up-to-date with the most widely-supported, enterprise-level Linux distribution available. Based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS 7 is the most stable release yet, with several improvements over previous versions.

Apache 2.4

Apache 2.4 offers improved authorization features, lower memory utilization, and performance gains over Apache 2.2, bringing your website’s performance into the same league as Nginx and LiteSpeed.

MySQL 5.7 (MariaDB 10.2)

Deliver content up to 3x faster with MySQL 5.7 when compared with previous versions. MariaDB also allows for improved Auto Scaling thanks to its load balancing features.

PHP 7.0, 7.1

Run your business on PHP 7 or later, ensuring improved security features, better support, and noticeable performance gains. PHP 7 or later offers up to 3x more transactions when compared with older versions due to lower memory consumption.

Open Source Hybridization

With a combination of open source and proprietary technologies, including OpenStack, Kolla, Docker, and Ansible, we make sure your platform has both the flexibility and performance it needs.


With 8 DNS nameservers divided between both Amazon Route53 and Dyn, your DNS records will be secure, fast, and reliable. Moreover, as Nexcess handles DNS alterations internally, any service changes you make will be updated immediately.


Web Application Firewall (WAF)

Optimize your security with tailored firewall rules designed to ensure you don’t lose valuable traffic while still being protected from threats. Nexcess Cloud’s WAF rules follow industry standards without compromising on yours.

SSL Application Stack

The Nexcess Cloud SSL Application Stack makes sure your security and management aren't compromised by incorporating the features you need: Forward Secrecy and Server Name Indication.

Upgrade to an Extended Validation SSL Certificate for the highest class of SSL certificate; activating both the padlock and the green address bar in most browsers.

Forward Secrecy

Forward Secrecy keeps your website’s history secret, by ensuring your session keys are not at risk even if your cloud account’s private key is.

Server Name Indication (SNI)

For the XS, S, and M cloud platforms, Server Name Indication means you’ll save money by sharing an IP. For our L, XL, and 2XL cloud platforms, it means you’ll only ever have to manage one IP, even with multiple domains.

PCI Compliant Environment

The Nexcess Cloud ensures your website is able to encrypt, receive, and process credit card data by meeting the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). An important consideration for any eCommerce business.



Deploy Redis for backend and session caching. Redis combines optimized data structures with in-memory, schema-less design, in order to provide you with a high-performance data structure cloud account.


By anticipating content requirements and preventing multiple threads from being opened at the same time, HTTP/2 means faster load times, better security, and improved compatibility.

Development Tools & Access

Git & Mercurial

Improved development support with complete versioning control. Git and Mercurial ensure updating your website is as simple as possible.


Make things easier when developing PHP apps by using Composer. Composer allows you to manage all of your PHP dependency libraries in just one place.

SSH Access and Multi-User SSH

Secure Shell (SSH) makes sure your website stays secure when operating over unsecured networks. With multi-user SSH, you’ll be able to add multiple users to your cloud account with ease.

Client Secure FTP Access

Standard FTP transfers can be left exposed to attacks and tampering. Simply change the settings on your existing FTP client, and FTPS provides protection during the transfer process for your cloud storage.

Linked SSH and FTPS Access

Manage SSH and FTPS access with shared user credentials for each user, making individual management of accounts and settings easier.


Beyond Management

We make sure you don’t have to go it alone by offering more than just help. Beyond Management means ensuring your cloud account stays safe and running healthy.

Free Migrations

Migrate to the Nexcess Cloud for free. We don’t charge for site migrations on all Nexcess platforms and make sure there is little to no downtime during the switch.

Daily Backups

Just in case the unthinkable happens, daily backups of your cloud account will be created off-site and archived for 30 days.
