Hosting Cloudron on Hetzner Cloud

By Girish on Monday, January 29th 2018

We are happy to announce support for running Cloudron on Hetzner Cloud.

For those unaware, Cloudron is a platform that makes it easy to run apps on your server and keep them up-to-date. After installing Cloudron, you have instant access to over 50 apps from the Cloudron App Store. We track upstream releases and push out updates requiring no server maintanence on your part.

Hetzner support

Hetzner Cloud made a big splash recently with some fantastic pricing changes to their Cloud offering. With the tag line "A little money gets you lots of Cloud", they have some amazing deals: a 4 vCPU with 16GB RAM is only 15.90 EUR/month! In addition to the pricing changes, they also introduced per hour billing.

Installing Cloudron

Installing Cloudron on Hetzner is straigtforward. First, create a vanilla Ubuntu 16.04 server:

Once the server is up and running, connect via SSH and run the following commands:

chmod +x ./cloudron-setup
./cloudron-setup --provider hetzner

Once installation has finished, open https://<IP> in your browser, accept the temporary self-signed certificate, and proceed with the domain configuration.

You are now all set to install over 50 apps from our Cloudron App Store!
