Update wikitech docs to prefer wmcloud.org and eqiad1.wikimedia.cloud domains
Open, MediumPublic

Description

I've updated some pages that I suspect are the most important:

https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Accessing_Cloud_VPS_instances
https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Access_to_Cloud_VPS_instances_with_PuTTY_and_WinSCP
https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Horizon_FAQ

I'm hoping someone with better mediawiki skills can do a search and clean up other stragglers.

NOTE: Mentions of *.svc.eqiad.wmflabs should NOT be changed at this time per https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/News/Phasing_out_the_.wmflabs_domain#What_about_*.svc.eqiad.wmflabs?

@Hanan8822: Hi, did you read the last two comments before commenting here? As that would have answered your question...

@Aklapper Hi, yes I did, and that's why I asked to confirm what is next after looking at the left corner? the task looks open to me, do I assign myself and start working? I am new to open source projects. Thank you

Thanks for the clarification! Please see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_become_a_MediaWiki_hacker#Suggested_reading which should answer this. :)
