Hetzner Cloud Apps

Our apps provide you easy access to often used software, such as Docker, WordPress or Nextcloud, with the same intuitive workflow as you already know it from the Hetzner Cloud Server deployment. In order to make this software available to you, we preinstall the relevant software on your server when you create it.


Each app has a documentation page which will give you a short overview over the implementation of the software used for our apps. This will include what we have installed in this image, where you can find passwords if we have generated any and what you might need to configure by yourself.

To read those documentations, please refer to List of Apps or our readmes on GitHub.

How it works

We use a combination of Packer and cloud-init to build a static image with all the required software in our cloud, create a snapshot, store it and if this image will later be deployed to your cloud instance, we will generate dynamic information like passwords on demand directly on your server.

Our Hetzner Cloud Apps are open-source projects. To get more information about metadata we use and more, please refer to GitHub.
