Managed Cloud Compute

Spin up a cloud server in 2 mins

Scalable, linux-based virtual machines with full management, free backups, DDoS protection, fast Intel® cores and SSD storage.

Core Features

FeatureHostJane Cloud

Each compute instance runs as a virtualized layer above world-class hardware—root access and a unique dedicated IPv4 and IPv6 (optional) address.

24×7 monitoring, server and app support included free, that larger unmanaged and self-managed cloud providers bill as "add-ons". 

Free 24 Hr Backups

On JaneCloud’s 10Gbit network, we automatically run complete backups of your cloud server every 24-48 hours. Two backups are always available as “restore points”. Your data is protected in Tier III world-class datacenters. Bigger providers make customers pay extra for this critical feature.

Open a support ticket to request a list of backups available. 

*Note that while backups are free, we charge an up-front $15 data restore fee for administration work to restore a JaneCloud to an earlier time.


JaneCloud’s resilient network offers good and transparent uptime, fantastic global connectivity, and Tier III datacenters that operate:

  • 24/7 IT experts proficient in public and private cloud security
  • Robust, state-of-the art facilities that guard against both natural disasters and physical intrusions
  • Back-up generators

It’s easy to create a copy or snapshot of your JaneCloud server at a specific moment in time, for future backup or prior to major changes.

Developed with top datacenters, the infrastructure is consistently improving.

Private Spaces

Not ready to go live? We can move your server behind a cloud firewall, which is a secure location in the datacenter.

Only you, our support team, and your handpicked IP whitelist will be granted access to see your cloud while it’s in private space.

DDoS Protection

HostJane protects against multiple types of Denial-of-Service actions designed to overwhelm your server. We guard against up to 10 GB per second of malicious traffic against your JaneCloud and associated IP addresses.

The JaneCloud network continuously analyzes all traffic and will filter and attenuate malicious Denial-of-Service attacks, diverting malicious traffic to a mitigation zone as soon as bad actors are identified on the network.

Customers should be aware that no system however protected is DDoS proof. JaneCloud’s network will protect you against the most common volume-based and protocol floods.

Scale Instantly

JaneClouds are deployed in 90-120 seconds with full CLI root-access, and scale instantly with no downtime. If your website takes an unexpected surge of traffic, JaneCloud will keep you up.

Additionally, JaneClouds include a suite of proactive fully-managed services to support fast scaling:

  • Seamless, instant cloud scaling on request;
  • 24-hr free auto backups and free backup storage;
  • 24×7 monitoring;
  • Qualified 24×7 response team;
  • On-going maintenance;
  • OS updates and patches;

Root access

Yes. Login to the Hosting Portal and use your server’s IP address provided in Statistics 

Connect to your JaneCloud server either with  PuTTY on Windows or an  OpenSSH client in linux and MacOS devices.

1. Open your client terminal, and enter the command:

ssh root@[Your_Server's_IP]

You need to replace [Your_Server's_IP] with your JaneCloud’s IP address from Statistics in the Hosting Portal after the @

Hit enter and yes to any prompts.

2. Unless you are connecting with SSH keys, you need to manually enter the root password (found in your server’s Statistics dashboard in My HostJane) to complete the login.

Help setting up

Refer to JaneCloud Setup Guides or hire a developer on HostJane Marketplace

These cover basic techniques for running basic linux distributions like Ubuntu and CentOS, and help using PuTTY and other command line programs.

Unfortunately our staff are not able to provide in-depth consultations.

We also recommend looking into some free online linux courses if you need extra assistance.

Domain pointing

You will need to add an A-record to your domain at the registrar.

Large size computes

Yes, we can offer full-managed linux clouds over 160GB including upgrading your current cloud.

We will need to verify your account by signing a credit card authorization form with copies of front and back of your card.

Please contact us for pricing or open a ticket if you’re an existing customer.


1. Login to your JaneCloud server in the Hosting Portal

Navigate to: Manage > Server > Actions

Click the green restart button.

Static IP

Yes, it can’t be changed even if you buy a second IPv4 or a floating IPv4.

To set a new IPv4, you'd need to spin up a new cloud server.

Windows-based servers

No, not at this time.

Additional IPs

At this time, you can purchase 1 additional IPv4 address per JaneCloud. Open a support ticket to buy an IPv4..

Free backups

HostJane makes nightly backups of your entire server files and databases.

We generally always have at least 2 past backups of each JaneCloud in our system.

We begin overwriting past backups, after 72 hours of storage. To request a restoration from a past backup, please contact us. There is a $15 data restore admin fee.

Note the restoration process can take up to 60 minutes and during that time your server may be unavailable.

Billing policy

All JaneCloud VMs must be paid for at the beginning of the monthly billing cycle.

Refund policy

Due to the nature of cloud server provisioning, refunds are typically not available unless there is a material problem with your server that occurs our end.

SSH keys

Yes, JaneCloud supports SSH keys

1. Once you have generated your keys in PuTTYgen, use your terminal client to add the public key (which is the long string beginning ssh rsa) to the root user on your JaneCloud server.

2. Create a PuTTY Profile to login without using your password

WARNING: Make sure you do not lose your keys as we cannot help you recover them if lost. If you’ve disabled username/password login you won’t be able to login to your server.

Connect via SFTP

Yes, read our FTP guide.

Lost passwords

For security reasons, we have to reset the root password for you. However, this attracts a small admin fee. Contact support to proceed.


Hosting customers can destroy their servers from your secure Hosting Portal account.

This will automatically cancel the service, but does NOT provide a prorated refund if you cancel before the end of the monthly cycle.

  2. Select Manage under Options.
  3. Look for Cancel Server at the bottom of the Information tab.
