Installing Matomo On-Premise
Take care of running Matomo yourself by installing it on your own server.
Before you install Matomo On-Premise, ask yourself these three questions:
1. Do you want to Cloud-host or host On-Premise?
Wondering if Matomo On-Premise is right for you? There are two ways you can get Matomo Analytics. Either you self-host it yourself on-premises, or you can use our cloud-hosting service. Both options give you full data ownership and respect your privacy.
✓ Easy to setup (same setup process as Google Analytics)
✓ Automatic updates
✓ Save time and money
✓ Support included with all monthly plans
Both hosting options:
✓ 100% Data Ownership
✓ No Data Sampling
✓ User-Privacy Protection
✓ GDPR Manager
✓ Migrate data from one hosting option to the other anytime
✓ Choose where your data is stored
✓ Freely accessible
✓ Fully customisable and extensible
✓ No data limits whatsoever
2. Do you know the requirements to host Matomo On-Premise?
On-Premise is perfect for data sensitive individuals and businesses. With Matomo On-Premise, there is no cost to download the application, but you will need a server. You’ll also need to update Matomo and your server regularly to keep it fast and secure. Need help? The Matomo team provides free help resources and paid support.
On-Premise gives you full control to customise or extend Matomo Analytics without any restrictions.
However, the process doesn’t end with the click of a button as Matomo On-Premise does require technical knowledge about hosting applications on your own servers. For businesses this is often taken care of by an IT department. If convenience and technical expertise is a factor, why not choose the cloud? With the cloud-hosted option we can smoothly take over the setup, monitoring and maintenance for you.
