    Hi,

    all I got Its just a windows server with database, nothing else

    Then why do you call it a cloud hosting?

    Ask the team responsible for the server if they've set up an application in IIS for you and that you can make use of webdeploy in Visual Studio. For the database, either generate your script from Entity Framework code migrations (if you happen to be using that), or create all tables etc from scratch in SQL Management Studio in the database directly (you can also make use of a Visual Studio version that supports it).

    Hi,

    if you're not using Azure, which "cloud" are you making use of then? If you have a "cloud" host then likely they'll also have a FAQ or tutorials on their site to get you going or contact their helpdesk.

    Likely it's just a webdeploy you need/want and you should get the credentials and place to publish from your "cloud" host.
