The smoothest path to chat

Cloud hosting FAQ

How do I deploy the cloud option?

It’s as simple as installing the WhosOn client onto your machine and adding a line of code to your website. We take care of hosting, we take care of security, and we take care of upkeep.

What is included in the cloud edition?

You get access to all standard features right away, as well as ongoing support and updates rolled into your package.

Who is cloud hosting best for?

If you’re not heavily regulated, our cloud live chat is probably the edition for you. Similarly, if you don’t have extensive tech resources, cloud-based chat is your more straightforward option.

Where is my data kept?

For EU customers, your data sits in a UK Rackspace data centre. Outside the EU, your data is housed is in a US Rackspace data centre.

Advanced deployment options

If your requirements go beyond the scope of a standard cloud deployment, we can help. For larger or more complex projects, we offer a range of extra services.

Dedicated server setup

Get a fully managed Windows server. This has WhosOn pre-installed and comes custom configured to you. Your own DNS name can be registered to the server and your own SSL certificate is included.

Custom rollouts

It might be a secure live chat staging environment. It might be an international chat project broken into phases. Whatever your need, we can deliver a custom approach to your deployment.

Hybrid hosting

As well as secure cloud hosting, we also offer on-premises installations of WhosOn. So, enterprises and conglomerates can take advantage of both options on a per-brand or per-country basis.
