What You Need to Know About Umbraco Cloud

Are you tired of the dull tasks of maintaining your website? If you're reading this post, you are likely already utilising or looking to implement a content management system for your website that will make the tasks of web maintenance easier.

Have you considered moving your CMS over to cloud hosting? Umbraco Cloud is a managed website hosting service, based, obviously, in the cloud. Cloud hosting services have been gaining momentum and there are many benefits to moving to Umbraco Cloud's CMS hosting platform.

Benefits of Using Umbraco Cloud

Save Time with Umbraco Cloud

One major advantage of using Umbraco Cloud is how much time you can save by eliminating tedious tasks. Umbraco Cloud features automated upgrades and security fixes, ensuring your site runs smoothly. Other benefits include having the installation, infrastructure, and security of your website taken care of by Umbraco's highly-skilled and certified support team. The type and amount of help will vary depending on which support package you subscribe to.

User Management Made Easy with the Umbraco Cloud Portal

Umbraco Cloud makes user management easy with the Umbraco Cloud Portal. The Portal gives you an overview of what is happening on your site in a centralised location. From the Umbraco Cloud Portal, you can manage user permissions and preferences, manage your team, and work with external collaborators and clients with ease.

Work Flow Tools

Umbraco Cloud supports your website's content development with various tools to save you time and troubles. The intuitive built-in tool called ContentFlow aides in a smooth editing and publishing process in separate environments. Another helpful tool is the fail-safe Baselines feature which allows you to reuse elements of a project with just one click instead of starting over from scratch. Additionally, Umbraco Cloud provides tools that let you work on your project in the cloud or locally, by allowing you to clone the project to a device of your choice.

Challenges of Using Umbraco Cloud

Migrating or converting an existing website to the Umbraco Cloud may present challenges for full functionality. To take full advantage of Umbraco Cloud services, it's best to use it from the start of a new project. Although you can migrate an existing site to Umbraco Cloud, manual changes may have to be made in order for your site to fully function. Also, Umbraco Cloud does not currently support projects created on the Umbraco Headless platform.

Umbraco Community Builder | .Net MVC Developer | Umbraco Certified Master | Recruitment Professional

Hey Peeps,

I'm an entrepreneur and web developer with a passion for coding. I absolutely love working with Umbraco CMS and appreciate the Umbraco community even more.

I've got 10 years+ .Net experience and 7 years+ experience working in the recruitment industry, both coding and marketing job websites. I wanted to use my skills to help give something back to this awesome community and so I decided to build UmbraJobs.com.

My vision & fundamentals

I want this website to be a place where Umbraco Professionals and Umbraco Partners can advertise their services but at the same time I want to filter out all the under-qualified freelancers & agencies that take up the biggest part of other job & freelancer websites. We've all worked hard to gain our Umbraco certifications, partnership status, and help build the Umbraco community to what it is today. I want to see everyone get rewarded for their efforts.

Follow me on social media

If you're an Umbraco professional, partner, employer, recruiter or a passionate Umbraco community builder then I'm more than happy to hear from you. Follow me on my social media channels and please reach out if you have any needs, want help or consultation with anything Umbraco related or just want a general chat.
