Getting a production environment of PostHog up and running is probably one of the first things you want to do! This section goes through the different options available depending on where you'll be hosting PostHog, and includes guides on several of the most popular services.
Self-host vs PostHog Cloud: Self-hosting PostHog means managing the service yourself and taking care of upgrades, scaling, security etc. If you are less technical or looking for a hands-off experience, we recommend PostHog Cloud. You can also find support partners to manage the service for you via the PostHog Marketplace.
