The Easiest Way for Developers
to Build Applications in the Cloud

Hidora is a Swiss-based managed cloud hosting platform (PaaS) that supports any PHP, Java, Python, Node.js, Ruby or Docker-based applications.

With Hidora Hosting Platform, you can build and scale websites and mobile backends with just a few clicks. Hidora’s intuitive management-dashboard is so simple that you only need to concentrate on development and can forget about system administration tasks like managing and configuring servers, databases and load balancers.



Deploy web apps in seconds

Creating an environment is easier than you think. Hidora simplifies all of the processes by offering you an automated cloud hosting platform with support for all popular stacks.

Run performance-optimized apps

Growing from prototype to production to high-traffic website is an essential part of every successful business. Keep the momentum going with your website as you don’t need to worry about capacity, reliability or performance.

Pay as you-use
Only pay for what you use

Hidora can save you up to 80% of your hosting bill. A Pay as you go pricing model means that you only need to pay for the resources that your applications actually use.

Deploy web apps in seconds, forget about administration

With Hidora you can make your operational applications extremely quickly. You can enable auto-scaling and set your minimum and maximum resource parameters almost instantly. Need more complex configurations? Easily set up HA and DB clusters. Want to create testing and staging environments? Simply clone your production website in a click. You can even deploy your apps using API. Leave all the administrative tasks to Hidora so you can spend your time coding!

Transparent and flexible pricing

With Hidora’s flexible pricing you pay exactly for the resources you use, so you don’t need to guess how many you need to buy beforehand. Set your limits, keep your costs as low as possible and don’t worry about traffic spikes. For example, you can get an 8GB server but if you only utilize 2GB, you only pay for 2GB. There’s no charge for the RAM or CPU control that you didn’t use – you only need to pay for what you consume! Our hourly billing and auto-scaling can save you up to 80% in costs. If you have a seasonal business, you can only pay for storage when your application isn’t being used.

All Features You Need To Build And Scale

scalable (1)
Automatic vertical and horizontal scaling
Easily enable automatic application vertical scaling (up and down), or automatic horizontal scaling (in and out) with seamless load balancing across servers. Automatic vertical scalability can help you to handle traffic spikes hassle-free and without restarts.
sql nosql - Copie
SQL & NoSQL database support
Combine your web servers with standard database server instances (dedicated instances exclusively for you) such as MySQL, MariaDB, Percona, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Redis, Cassandra, Neo4j, and OrientDB. You can even configure database replication & high availability in a click.
fast web applications deployment
Effortless code deployment
Hidora offers plenty of application deployment options. You can deploy your code using Git/SVN integration, or upload any WAR/ZIP archive that contains already built deployment packages. Another options is to integrate your own CI/CD solution such as Jenkins or GitLab CI with SSH-driven deployment, or use plugins for IntellJ Idea, Eclipse and NetBeans. Java developers can leverage our Maven deployment plugin that can be included into pom.xml.
High availability of applications
Configure automatic replication of application instances and fail-over seamlessly through the PaaS portal, with zero user impact. Your application nodes will be distributed across different physical hosts and isolated from each other, which leads to less application downtime and maximum availability.
Launch applications using pre-configured and performance optimized technology stacks: Java, PHP, Ruby, Python, and Node.js, and leading open source application servers such as Tomcat, Apache, Nginx, Jetty, and even GlassFish or Wildfly. If you need any other languages or stacks – just easily add them with the help of Docker containers.
Monitor your application performance and get real-time reports on Application load, Memory, CPU, and traffic consumption. You can access your historical data for analytical purposes. Hidora's Cloud can also notify you about traffic spikes and perform automatic scaling if needed. If you prefer using NewRelic, Dripstat or any other monitoring tool – it can be easily installed through add-ons.
Dedicated load balancers
Add a dedicated load balancer based on NGINX or HAProxy to your environment to distribute requests across horizontally scaled servers, increasing application performance and capacity. Our load balancers are preconfigured to work out of the box, including support for sticky sessions, SSL, Let’s Encrypt and WebSockets. Need to tune a load balancer to your own specifications? No problem, our load balancer is fully customisable!
Work better together
Collaborate with anyone from coworkers to clients. In Hidora, you can share environments with your team and clients, manage permissions, and control all changes with integrated audit logging.

Intuitive Dashboard

You don’t need anymore to figure out how to manage environments. Our intuitive dashboard with reach interactive visualizations simplifies the process of creating environments, installation, scaling and deploying applications.


SSH Access

Although our self-service portal allows to perform comprehensive management of your cloud environments, you can easily connect to your containers using SSH. Moreover, full root access is available for all CentOS & Ubuntu servers, or custom Docker containers.

See What Our Customers Are Saying

Marc-Christian PERRONNET

The location of data is a crucial issue for businesses or individuals who need to host their confidential and / or personal data in the cloud. All countries have different laws and do not impose the same level of security as in Switzerland. It is therefore recommended that Swiss companies ensure that their data is hosted exclusively in Switzerland.

As a small team with a limited time dedicated to infrastructure and server management, we use Hidora in order to automate most of our processes of development and deployment. This enables us to have the productivity of a big team while staying smaller and agile.

Hidora has put together a high-performing and very scalable infrastructure for our website, a critical point for us as we will be conducting a token sale (a.k.a. ICO) later this year. Token sales can draw thousands of connection request in their last hours, it is of the utmost importance to have a reactive infrastructure to offer a good investor experience.
