Since Matomo (Piwik) 2.0, we have made many improvements to the code and Matomo can now easily track millions of pages and events and manage thousands of websites.

While Matomo (Piwik) can scale to millions of pages, it is also very efficient to run on a smaller scale, for example on a shared hosting account.

Matomo (Piwik) is a Web Analytics platform designed for speed.

What infrastructure do I need to run Matomo?

  • if your websites have less than 1,000 pages or events per day (less than 30,000 per month), Matomo (Piwik) works on most hosting even the cheapest ones.
  • if your websites have less than 10,000 pages or events per day (less than 300,000 per month), Matomo (Piwik) works well on fast shared hosting and virtual servers.
  • if your websites have more than 100,000 pages or events per day (more than 3 million per month), you may need virtual server or dedicated hosting or Cloud Hosted Matomo (Piwik) service.
  • Matomo (Piwik) can be configured to work well up to 1 billion million pages or events per month, and we know of several websites with 500 million and even more than 1 billion pageviews per month using Matomo with great success! We hope to see many more power users use Matomo in the future.

If you run a high traffic Matomo Analytics instance, we recommend to contact the Matomo experts for more information.
