Host Matomo On-Premise or Cloud
You have the option to run Matomo yourself by installing it on your own servers.
Is Matomo On-Premise or Cloud-hosting right for you? There are two ways you can host Matomo Analytics. Either self-host it yourself with Matomo On-Premise, or host it through the Matomo Cloud. You can breathe easy knowing both options give you full data ownership and respect for user privacy.
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 Matomo Cloud? With the cloud hosted option we can smoothly take over the setup, monitoring and maintenance for you.
