Hey! Long time no see. πŸ‘‹

I have quite a lot of updates. Since we talked, I've quit freelancing to focus on Coolify version 4 entirely. The development speed is huge! πŸ“ˆ

We are at version 120 of the beta version. Many new features have been added, and we are closer and closer to the first non-beta version.

Even though it is beta, it is pretty stable. Lots of companies / freelancers / agencies are using it daily!

As You know - if not, you will now πŸ˜… - I've been burning my savings since I quit freelancing. I posted my feelings on Twitter about this a few days ago (link) and some of the responses encouraged me to take some action.

I love what I do with Coolify: help you host on your own things simpler, cheaper, without vendor lock-in, with no features behind a paywall, free & open.

To be able to do the development at the same speed as I do in these few months:

I need your help! πŸ’œ

I never will stop developing Coolify, however, if I start freelancing again, the development will slow down as I cannot concentrate on it 100%. πŸ“‰

Gosh, it is so hard to write this down... 😣

The biggest help you can do is to financially support me & my projects through:

πŸ‘‰ GitHub Sponsors

πŸ‘‰ Open Collective

I cannot thank you enough if you do and help me keep up the same momentum! πŸ’œ

State of Version 4

I've added 99% of the features to version 4 from 3, and even more. Just a list of plus things in v4:

  • Monitoring of your applications and servers.
  • Server automation (cleanups, checks, etc).
  • Notification system to notify you what is happening with your servers/applications (supported channels are Telegram, Email, Discord at the moment).
  • Scheduled and automated backups for all kinds of databases locally to your server or to an S3-compatible remote storage (You can even host a MinIO instance with one click on your server with Coolify, and point all backups to it! 🀯)
  • Webhooks (you can initial a deployment from your CMS, GitHub Actions, anywhere)
  • Lots of services ( and the list is growing.
  • You can customize anything for your needs.
  • Clone your projects with all the applications/databases/services included. If you have clients, you can quickly replicate a whole environment to a different server!
  • You can execute any command on your server without leaving Coolify's UI (full terminal integration coming soon).
  • Etc.

What's next?

  • CLI to manage everything from your terminal.
  • Fully observability. Send logs/metrics to your favorite 3rd party services (Axiom, Datadog, Newrelic), or self-host your own with an open-source observability system, like Signoz or HyperDx (or with Loki + Grafana).
  • Load balancing between several standalone servers.
  • Integrate with Hetzner, GCP, AWS, etc to quickly integrate new servers.
  • Docker Swarm integration.
  • Kubernetes integration.
  • Etc.


A month ago, I started to offer a cloud version, where you do not need to host Coolify itself, but you can still use your servers, so there is no vendor lock-in! πŸ”“

It starts with a $5/month tier, equivalent if you host your Coolify on a server and add remote servers for your applications/resources.

It is a highly available Coolify instance, always ready, and up-to-date.
