Any information you store in this folder will be automatically publicly shared.
Your contacts can only access your publicly shared files via this URL:


Is it possible to connect with several users at the same time?
5 users can connect at the same time to one single iKeepinCloud account, regardless of the protocol used. Make sure not to work on the same documents!
Is iKeepinCloud compatible with Rsync?
Yes, you can use the RSync command via a SSH tunnel to carry out planned backups.
Is my data really confidential?
Yes, all of your data is confidential. No Ikoula employee is able to look at the data circulating on the iKeepinCloud accounts. If you still have any doubts, we suggest you use the best relevant program: TrueCrypt. This software will enable you to encrypt your data as soon as you transmit them to your online iKeepinCloud storage space. Even the most skilled hackers will be incapable of beating this fantastic software!
Is iKeepinCloud truly secure?
Here at Ikoula the security of your data is our number one priority. Your data is stored in our own Data Centre located in France. It is duplicated 3 times across 3 servers based in independent infrastructure units. SFTP protocol also allows you to provide maximum security to your transfers.

I can’t connect without software. But I am following the instructions from the tutorial!
Please check that the password for your iKeepinCloud has been entered correctly. An incorrect password input is a very common error! We have found that a software-free connection is often blocked by firewalls. The LiveBox Orange firewall, for example, has a reputation for blocking the software-free iKeepinCloud connection. Go to your internet provider’s administrative interface and lower your firewall’s protection level to the minimum. The problem should then be resolved.
I have forgotten by iKeepinCloud password, what can I do?
You can find your password again in the email you received when you registered with iKeepinCloud. You can also change your iKeepinCloud from the Ikoula extranet. Connect to your Ikoula customer account then select your iKeepinCloud service. There will be an option for changing your password.

  • 7 programming languages: C, PHP, Java, Perl, Ruby, Python and Sharpbox.

Backup and recovery of your server
iKeepinCloud is RSync-compatible (over SSH) and enables you to synchronise your dedicated server with iKeepinCloud in real time. Your dedicated server will have a complete backup on the Ikoula Cloud platform. iKeepinCloud is natively compatible with the Plesk Control Panel and allows you to carry out a full backup of your dedicated server in just a few clicks. You can also carry out a software-free backup of your OS, data, and snapshots in one click from your Ikoula extranet with the “Restore VHD” option. This option is compatible with the Flex’Server, flexicloud, and cloudikoulaone offers.

Windows-compatible, iKeepinCloud now includes a backup and synchronisation function that does not require the installation of any software. By using “Files history” you can automate your backup into the iKeepinCloud in just a few clicks.

100+ compatible applications
iKeepinCloud allows the usage of any backup or transfer software or mobile using one of the numerous protocols available. Open Source, free and efficient, you can adapt iKeepinCloud to all your needs.

  • Backup software: plan, secure, and select from around a hundred different possibilities to carry out highly customised backups.
  • Mobile applications: access all your data for free from all of the current smartphone and tablet models (Windows Phone, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, etc.)
Which protocols are compatible with iKeepinCloud?
Webdav (Web enabled Distributed Authoring and Versioning) is an extension of the http protocol facilitating the management of inventories and resources between a remote web server and a client. Natively compatible with the majority of PC, Mac OS or Linux devices, webdav allows you to restore and publish files quickly and easily. The main purpose of webdav is to make writing, and not just reading data possible across the web. The advantages of webdav are:
  • The use of the http protocol which easily passes through NAT routers and firewalls.
  • The simple securitisation of data traffic using the https protocol which facilitates the encryption of the data exchanged
  • Transparent integration into all of the products that support webdav
In fact, with webdav, three types of access are on offer. You can consult and store your files:
  • Via a simple web browser in http(s) which will redirect you to an interface designed by Ikoula, xxxxx.ikeepincloud.com
  • Via customer login, or software, allowing you to connect a specific location directly to a server. They can function on PC, Mac OS or Linux.
  • Via the native integrated console on Windows, Linux and Mac OS

The FTP protocol (File Transfer Protocol) is, as its name implies, a protocol that transfers files. It defines the manner in which the data should be transferred on a network between a server and a client. To access a FTP server, you should use a FTP client software (with a graphic interface or in command lines). The secure version of FTP with the SSL or TLS protocols is called FTPS (strongly recommended). The advantages of the FTP(s) are:
  • A simple FTP client is sufficient for accessing the server. Such FTP clients exist in all the operating systems.
  • Access to web pages is identical to the method that would be used on a remote internet server.
  • If you have permanent access to the internet this access can become visible externally. In this case, make sure to prohibit anonymous access to your server.
With the FTP(s) protocol you can consult and store your files via a customer login, or software, (Windows, Linux or Mac OS) which will provide a clear and simple user interface.

In the context of SSH (Secure Shell), the SFTP is a communication protocol that functions above SSH to transfer and manage files remotely. It is also a command line program that implements the client part of this communication protocol, such as that provided by winscp. SFTP supports many more remote operations on files and behaves more like a file system protocol. The SFTP program generates an interface similar to the FTP program. The advantages of the SFTP are:
  • The connection between the client and the server is encrypted. Hackers, even if they are monitoring this connection, cannot read the confidential information (such as passwords) being transferred across it. Your data is all the more protected!
  • Public key cryptography enables SFTP to guarantee the mutual authentication of the client (user) and the server. Hackers cannot redirect a connection to a server under their control.
With the SFTP protocol you can consult and store your files via a customer login, or software, (Windows, Linux or Mac OS) which will provide a clear and simple user interface. Samba/CIFS: The S.M.B (“Server Message Block”, formally known as C.I.F.S. or “Common Internet File System”) enables resource-sharing (files and printers) on local networks. It authorises access to the resources of other computers working with the Windows (native), Apple Mac OS X, GNU/Linux, BSD, and Solaris operating systems (via the “Samba” application). The advantages of S.M.B and Samba are:
  • Excellent performance (speed, latency, number of users)
  • Reliable, stable, and easy to implement (can be used without a client on the majority of recent systems)
  • Numerous powerful tools are available to simplify server administration (Apache, programming languages, etc.)
How can I import data from my external hard drive to iKeepinCloud?
Do you have a large volume of data and would you like to transfer it to the Cloud? We can offer you a solution that is much faster than transfer via the internet, and more economic than upgrading your connection.

In fact, our Import IKIC offer will transfer your data directly from your external hard drive via an internal high-speed Ikoula network, bypassing the internet. This offer can be particularly beneficial, particularly within the context of:
  • Data migration: import via iKeepinCloud is faster than transfer via the internet
  • Remote backup: for storing your important data on a trustworthy and redundant space
  • Recovery in the case of an incident: for the quick recovery of your information in the case of an incident
You only have to do one thing: send us your drives. We will take care of the rest with the Import IKIC!

The Import IKIC requires a preparation and transfer time that is less than the time for a transfer of your data via the intermediary of your internet connection.

The table opposite provides you with a rough idea of the time that you would need to transfer your data from your home or workplace using the internet connection available to you there.
