Hostman is a container-oriented cloud hosting service. This means that each instance is launched inside its own Docker container.

Each piece of your architecture, such as the back-end application, database, queue, or cron worker, is a service.

This creates an abstraction layer that allows you to move beyond the server or cloud concept. Hostman also makes this concept transparent: for instance, you can see the hardware configuration, but you don't have to worry about setting up Nginx or obtaining an SSL certificate. We take care of all that for you.

Services communicate with each other using URLs via a global or local network. Hostman allows each service to be scaled in one click, so you can easily avoid bottlenecks when scaling the service under high load.
