Typebot is open-source and can be self-hosted on your own server. This guide will walk you through the process of setting up your own instance of Typebot.

The easiest way to get started with Typebot is with the official managed service in the Cloud. You’ll have high availability, backups, security, and maintenance all managed for you by me, Baptiste, Typebot’s founder.

The cloud version can save a substantial amount of developer time and resources. For most sites this ends up being the best value option and the revenue goes to funding the maintenance and further development of Typebot. So you’ll be supporting open source software and getting a great service!

Here is a summary of the license:

All content that resides under the ee directory of this repository is licensed under the license defined in ee/LICENSE. The ee folder contains the code for the landing page and the billing feature. We restrict these to a Commercial License to make sure other companies can’t simply clone Typebot’s homepage and billing system and offer the same service without contributing to the open-source project.

Content outside of this directory is available under the GNU Affero General Public License Version 3 (AGPLv3). The goal of the AGPLv3 license is to:

  • Maximize user freedom and to encourage companies to contribute to open source.
  • Prevent corporations from offering Typebot as a service without contributing back to the open source project
  • Prevent corporations from confusing people and making them think that the service they sell is in any shape or form approved by the original team

Here are the 3 different possible use cases:

Either use case, sponsoring the project is a great way to give back to the community and to contribute to the long-term sustainability of the project. It also comes with some perks like priority support and private workshops. ❤️


The self-hosted version is somewhat of a LTS, you only get new release once a month. If you want features as soon as they are available, consider becoming a cloud user. New versions are published on the releases page.
