Hosting provider for basic workflows


new to n8n (and already love it !!!) !
As I want to self-host my n8n, I wonder which is the best hosting provider to choose?
Please note that My Business do not requires much ressources, I’m solo consultant, my workflows are not complicated.

I see that DigitalOcean offers start from 4$ and Hetzner from 4.15 €
Any other provider ? Time4vps or another one more cheaper?

Thank you and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Hey @Syphax,
welcome to the community :tada:

I personally prefer using Hetzner because of good pricing, good usability and the german located company/datacenters. Our docs about setting up n8n with docker-compose.yml and the traefik router with https should be a good fit.


Thank you @marcus :slight_smile:

Is it possible to host n8n on a Shared Hosting Account ?
It will be used for small tasks.

Should work fine on Hetzner shared cloud hosting.

As long as the shared hosting account lets you run node applications you could do that.

Personally I have a few different providers I use depending on what I am doing…

Digital Ocean
OVH / Kimsufi


@Jon hello, thanks for this information, have you some guide for set up with OVH/kimsufi ? best regards

Hey @Z_M,

Nothing specific to OVH/Kimsufi, Generally the hosting provider doesn’t matter as long as you can either install something using NPM or run a container you will be good to go.

The place to start would be here: Installation - n8n Documentation personally I use the Docker option.
