Selfhosting vs. VyHub Cloud | VyHub Blog Main Banner

VyHub now offers you the freedom to choose how you want to host your gaming community platform. But with great freedom comes a choice: VyHub Cloud or Selfhosting? Let’s delve into the details of VyHub Cloud vs. Selfhosting plan to help you make an informed decision.

What Is VyHub Cloud Plan?

VyHub Cloud is the hassle-free option where we handle the hosting for you. Your data is secure, backups are regular, and you don’t need any prior server hosting experience. Creating a VyHub Cloud instance takes less than 5 minutes. It’s the easiest option, though it might not provide 100% flexibility, which might be crucial for some of you.

What Is Selfhosting/On-Premise Plan?

Selfhosting means you run VyHub on your own server, giving you complete control. We provide the necessary docker image and comprehensive documentation, but you’re responsible for setup. Our Selfhosting plan offers direct database access and enhanced control over the VyHub platform. You have full privacy, as you control your data entirely. However, this option demands a bit more technical expertise and is ideal for experienced users or those eager to learn about service deployment.

Frontend Selfhosting: A Balanced Approach

Frontend selfhosting strikes a balance. Here, the backend is hosted by us, but you get the flexibility of managing your frontend. This means complete control over the frontend design without the complexities of managing the entire setup.
