Difference between different hostings

Hi Team

Is there any difference between hosting services listed below.

https://www.discourse.org/pricing

And are there any other hosting services other than the above 2?
The first one is very pricy and the second one from what I understand is a one time hosting service. If we have our own infrastructure is it better to go with 2nd one if there isnt any other hosting services?

Thank you

You can take a look here: What are some reputable managed Discourse hosting providers out there?

You can also self-host Discourse since it’s open-source software.

There is us :slight_smile:

In contrast to a one time installation service we take full responsibility for the availability and correct functioning of your forum, we make sure your forum software is up-to-date, and we make sure the servers have all the security patches they need.

Richard is it possible for you to host it in our infrastructure and add any of your employee for managing our discourse. Few details about us.

BYJUs is a Unicorn start based out of India. BYJUs is into educational technology space. We wanted to integrate discourse as a discussion forum for the students like discussion forum in Coursera for eg. We are very fast moving organisation and want to get this discussion forum up and running as soon as we can. It would be helpful if we can get on call at the earliest possible time to have a discussion around this.

Though one-time installations is a part of the business (It’s the bread and butter), Literate Computing also provides a wide range of support services, including hourly consulting, deployment on specialized configurations, and management on customer infrastructure (it pays the rent).
