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 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.
