Easy setup of open source software on VPS
Without much knowledge of server/VPS management I was able to set up some open source apps, with clear indications of costs. I won't have to worry about backups or upgrades of the software, as it will be taken care of, I only need to focus on using the software.

A Non-Technical User's Dream Come True
As someone who isn't tech-savvy, I've found the Elestio platform absolutely invaluable in helping me set up my apps quickly. I'm still surprised Elestio isn’t a household name yet.

Their team made deploying my no-code projects feel effortless. With just one click, I can scale my infrastructure, and the pricing couldn’t be more affordable and straightforward. But the highlight for me has been the customer service. A heartfelt thanks to Thomas and the team for their fast, thorough, and incredibly helpful responses.

If you're considering Elestio, my advice is to go for it. The process has been quick, easy, and incredibly smooth for me. I couldn't be happier with my choice.

I was particularly impressed with their support team's ability to alter management and deployment ports, such that my service (SFTP) is available at its native port - something that is sort of an uncommon request. delivered, and it is clear that they are willing to work with you to ensure your deployment is successful and reliable, even when your requirements are unique.

I am extremely pleased with the Elestio
I am extremely pleased with the Elestio product line and the customer service. Their implementation is more simple and easy to start (for those non-techy) compared to other self-hosting services that I've tried. I had some minor set up issues that the team handled promptly. They go above and beyond by reaching out to check and make sure all my questions are answered and needs are met. I run a busy medical practice and plan to introduce their products into my patient base to build an online community. I am confident knowing I can grow with Elestio and also refer to them as I spread the word of self hosting.

Love it, saves me hours
Love it, I haven’t come across a more complete platform where you can spin up an instance of any open source software within minutes.

I was amazed the dashboard even gives you access to VS Code for editing, a file explorer, terminal..however you need to access it you can.

The support is also great, I managed to migrate woocommerce/wordpress shop over in few hours with the help.

Soo glad I found elestio and highly recommend it!

Quick deployment of Moodle and very good support
A few days ago I registered an account, launched the free trial.

I activated a moodle site, and after an issue was quickly solved by the support team the moodle site was up and running.

Now I had an old moodle site on my webspace that I didn't know how to upgrade because of database and php version issues that I don't know how to handle ( I'm a teacher, I have some tech skills but not enough ). I decided I should try getting my old moodle data into this new site. I uploaded a backup...and it just worked 🙂 I've just begun using elestio but so far I'm totally satisfied with the service and support. Thank you elestio. I hope more people will know about this platform.

Really great managed open source services that helps to streamline FLOSS self hosting. I first came across Elestio while I was searching for installation guides and reviews of some open source tools I was evaluating.

Very impressed by the ease and the intuitive ways the dashboard and automation config have been designed, the wealth of services and hosting options they offer. Really save hours of manual updates and maintenance.

Response from support has also been really speedy, comprehensive and kind.

I discovered Elestio 1 year ago and have been using it ever since to deploy most of my workloads, I started with prestashop and WordPress sites, I was very impressed by performance and the management dashboard. Then I discovered tons of other amazing open source available there like Typebot to create AI based chatbots. I would like to mention Thomas from support is amazing, he provided detailed answers very quickly (Rest of the team is also great but special thanks to him)

Unique service.
I don't understand why this company is not better known. I have been using several shared hosting. I needed more speed but I didn't want the headaches of an unmanaged cloud hosting. So, et voila, here it is Now I have a fast virtual server using first-class cloud hosting providers but fully managed, and for a price very close to my old shared hosting.

Also, I find the support second to none. Staff is super helpful, sometimes way beyond the call of duty, and easily approachable by email and also by discord chat, which gives the feeling that you will never be alone if you have a problem.

10 points for these guys!

Game changer for non-technical folks who need a no code solution.
I was watching a demo video for a database project I'm working on and saw the host use this service. One click was all it took to install a database solution. As a non expert in this area, that caught my attention. I've been using Elestio ever since. Just this morning they fixed a small issue with one of the open source packages I was working on. Fast and easy. The team at Elestio is amazing. Give them a try.

A young but passionate company working their a$$e$ off.
It is a young company but with a great deal of passion for what they do!
The best part is that their discord and support are top-notch, so even when things aren't 100% working or, what counts is that they really do give their best all the time. Maybe a metric that can explain the service in the best way: the number of unsolved issues or issues that are solved in an unacceptable timeframe is 0.

An incredible dev ops platform that save weeks of work maintaining apps and open source services
My clients and my company cloud services are know well structured, safe, backed-ups, and I have a large choice of providers and VMs to host them.
I can easily deploy CI / CD, and a lot of open source services for my apps of for our internal tools in seconds.
I have a lot of tools to be able to maintain easily the services.
Before finding, I wasted weeks and weeks in dev ops, maintaining open source services on-premise on my VM and those of my clients. Today, give me a solution to save that time, and through an interface well thought.
If you encounter a problem, the support is really reactive and help you kindly.

This is the best managed hosting I've ever used
TL;DR: Elestio is awesome!

I previously ran Wordpress, Mastodon, and Peertube instances on other providers before switching to Elestio because I was tired of handling software updates myself.

Elestio has done a much better job than any of my previous providers, both in terms of reliable updates and at going the extra mile to help with support. I don't think I've ever gotten such quick replies to my support tickets in the 15+ years that I've used various hosting providers.

The other features (such as easy to setup block storage volumes, automatic VPN networking between your virtual machines even if they are in different data centers, etc.) are quite convenient too.

I really can't overstate how happy I am with Elestio and how highly I recommend them.

Great service
I ran into elestio early this year, and boy was I happy to have found this service. Although I’ve only used elestio for development purposes upto now, the first service that got created 10 months ago, is still up and running and the software (n8n workflow automation) has been kept up-to-date ever since. As a database developer, my main focus is producing user friendly apps and portals, and being able to get things up and running (and forget about them), is really comforting. Currently, I’m evaluating a new stack for building internal tools, based on open-source software. For this I’m looking at BudiBase, Supabase and Redash. When you’re looking for a new open source product, take a look a the available products on elestio’s website. If it’s there, it’s probably worth your while. And then you’re just a few clicks and a few minutes away from running your first service. Enjoy!

Elestio is an A++ Managed Hosting Service
I have worked for companies such as GoDaddy and A2 Hosting. I have been on the support side of things for a lot of different companies. Elestio is hands down the best experience I've had with a hosting company.

There are no upsells. They provide top-notch service, fast, and with no hidden fees. They actually help you manage your server. They don't need to upsell, because the service upsells for them.

Deploying a server with Elestio is a breeze, and they walk you through every step of it. I highly recommend their service.

Elestio evaluation…
I am in the process of evaluating elestio. The pre-sales support is just awesome, technically very competent and really lightning fast. For me this is the best basis for starting a wonderful relationship! I will write another review once I will have installed the first applications based on the elestio environment. So far their service has really been outstanding.

Hidden gem of a product!
Disclaimer: I've been a beta tester for and I've seen the platform evolve since 2020.

It's hard to fully explain how much of a paradigm shift elestio is - all I can say is that it has made a massive impact in how I plan and deploy services for my businesses.

I'm a technical co-founder of multiple companies with very small tech teams, so I tend to rely on SaaS products instead of 'rolling my own' infrastructure for things, because I don't want to accept all the responsibilities and difficulties of provisioning SSL certificates, software & OS updates, backups, etc.
