Self-host Zulip today.

Open-source team chat with enterprise-grade reliability and security.

100% open-source software.

When you self-host Zulip, you get the same software as our Zulip Cloud customers.

Unlike the competition, you don't pay for SAML authentication, LDAP sync, or advanced roles and permissions. There is no “open core” catch — just freely available world-class software.

Enterprise-grade security and compliance.

Protect your sensitive conversations and simplify compliance by self-hosting Zulip behind your firewall.

Zulip's authentication and permissions systems are designed to flexibly support every organization's security tools and policies.

Making sure your information stays protected is our highest priority.

Take charge of your mission-critical communication platform.

Keep full control of your data and avoid unpredictable downtime from SaaS team chat vendors by hosting Zulip on your own infrastructure.

Our extensive configuration options let you set up Zulip to suit the needs of your organization. Zulip offers over one hundred native integrations, and hundreds more via third-party extensions.

Installation and upgrades that Just Work.

Our well-documented scripts help you setup, backup, and upgrade your self-hosted Zulip installation. Migrate your data and integrations from other chat tools for a smooth transition.

Self-host Zulip directly on Ubuntu or Debian Linux, in Docker, or with prebuilt images for Digital Ocean and Render.

Zulip was quite easy to set up, and worked instantly. 1000 people — no problem.
— Erik Dittert, Head of IT at GUT contact
Zulip has been extremely stable and requires no maintenance beyond installing updates.
