Frequently asked questions
1. Can I use Plausible on more than one website?
Yes. You can add as many websites as you want under a single account. You will be charged for the total pageviews on all of your websites combined. For example, on the 10k plan you can either have 10 websites that each get 1000 pageviews per month, or one website that gets 10,000 pageviews per month.
2. What happens if I go over my plan limit?
You will never be charged extra for an occasional traffic spike. There are no surprise fees and your card will never be charged unexpectedly.
If your page views exceed your plan for two consecutive months, we will contact you to upgrade to a higher plan for the following month. You will have two weeks to make a decision. You can decide to continue with a higher plan or to cancel your account at that point.
3. Is Plausible open-source?
Plausible is fully open-source and available on Github so you can check out the code. We welcome feedback, have a public roadmap and are available to you via email.
4. Can I self-host Plausible??
Yes. We have a free as in beer Plausible Analytics Self-Hosted. It’s exactly the same code as our Cloud solution, only the self-hosted version you have to install, host and manage yourself on your own server. See here.
5. Why is Plausible not free like Google Analytics?
Google Analytics is free because Google has built their company and their wealth by collecting and analyzing huge amounts of personal information from web users and using these personal and behavioral insights to sell advertisements.
With Plausible, you 100% own and control all of your website data. This data is not being shared with or sold to any third-parties. Since we don't make money from targeted advertisement, we must ask for a small fee to keep the servers running.
6. How do you make sure my visitors' privacy is protected?
We take painstaking care to not collect or store any personal information that could be tied back to the visitor. You own your data and we will never sell it or use it in nefarious ways. Read more about our data policy.
