    • Windows Server 2019 and higher
    • IIS 10 and higher
    • SQL Server 2019 and higher
    • .NET 6.0.5+
    • Ability to set file permissions to include create/read/write (or better) for the user that "owns" the Application Pool for your site (NETWORK SERVICE, typically)

    You can use Umbraco Cloud to manage the hosting infrastructure. All Umbraco Cloud plans are hosted on Microsoft Azure, which gives your site a proven and solid foundation.

    For more information, see the Host and deploy ASP.NET Core applications article in the Microsoft documentation.

    Database Account Roles

    The database account used in the connection string will need permissions to read and write from tables as well as create schema during installs and upgrades:

    • The db_owner role has full permissions on the database.

    • To use an account with more restricted permissions, the db_datareader and db_datawriter roles will be needed for normal use to read from and write to the database. The db_ddladmin role, which can modify the database schema, is required for installs and upgrades of the CMS and/or any packages that create database tables.

    For more information on the Database-level roles, see the Microsoft documentation.
