I am on the Free Tier Level and I want to mention three things that really make these guys shine:
** No credit card required.
** You are able to choose a name for your application. Don't want to think about it? No worries, they will assign a random name to your application.
** Great documentation to get you started, still in trouble? Get in touch with the team by sending them an email and you will get up to speed in no time, even on Friday night!
Did I mention you are just one `git push` away from delivering your application to the world? That's right.

Outstanding hosting experience; really easy to set up, supports all modern Elixir patterns, fantastic personal support. They've been really great as our application has grown in popularity. I would recommend them to anyone.

I've had our production environment with Gigalixir for over a year now and it's been an awesome experience, and "just works"!
I'm a n00b when it comes to dev ops but these days it's not a burden at all.
And in the few cases it doesn't then support is there to help, always fast, knowledgeable and friendly.

Gigalixir was the first to provide us with a familiar deployment experience to share and manage our Elixir applications without forcing us to compromise on the many benefits of Elixir. The Gigalixir Team has been excellent and the stability of the platform has been top-notch. Highly recommend!

Gigalixir is a dream come true for Elixir developers. They make it fast, simple, and painless to hot-deploy EVM apps from GitHub directly to the cloud. Their technical support was generous, friendly, accurate and responsive. Every hosting service should be this well-matched to their developer community!

The platform was quick to set up and allowed us to accelerate our application development. For great pricing we had excellent uptime. The support was super prompt, polite and solved our problems quickly.

Gigalixir is very easy to get started with even if you're not an Elixir expert. Should you have a question not covered by the extensive documentation, the support is excellent.

I am new to the Gigalixir platform but just worked with their support team to fix 2 recurring issues we were struggling with for some time. I appreciate the hands-on help we received!

I recently had my first challenge with a deployment (after being on Gigalixir for over a year) that I couldn't resolve from the documentation so put in an email to support! I had a quick response and very helpful guidance and the issue was resolved within a half day.
I've found it easy to do deploys and scale up and down using both the command line and the web application.
Five stars comes from my background working with cloud infrastructure and Elixir. I admittedly don't have much comparable experience with the competition, but I do have experience supporting cloud operations and know how much Gigalixir has put into making their product as great as possible. I anticipate good things to continue to be added on, as the platform matures.

I've been running several hobby and professional apps in the wild with Gigalixir for several years. Getting started was extremely straight forward, and the docs have been able to answer almost all of my questions. When the docs don't provide an answer (to problems caused by my error 99% of the time), the support staff at Gigalixir has been incredible. They're highly responsive, even outside of the hours the publish, and extremely patient, working through issues primarily caused by my inexperience.

Gigalixir's support is top notch!
Gigalixir's platform is the best Elixir platform in existence. I recently ran into a weird issue when connecting and support got back to me right away and fixed my issue within a matter of minutes.

Gigalixir is solid. Their support and documentation are excellent, which makes all the difference. I have used them for three years and for multiple projects and have been very happy with my experience.

I was stuck with deploying my app on Gigalixir. I reached out to the team for help and soon they came to my rescue. I was assigned a really friendly engineer who took my codebase into his own hands. Voila!! it was resolved and my app works like a charm, runs like a charm. Cheers to team Gigalixir.

Gigalixir is super easy to use. Takes all the deployment and scaing headache out of the picture, and lets us focus on the development of our app.

I tried a few elixir paas and found gigalixir to be the simplest and easiest to get something running with database, custom domain and ssl cert. The support team was quick with solutions for me when I got stuck as well.

I spend ages getting custom containers and VPNs configured in AWS using YAML for my Elixir apps before discovering Gigalixir. The setup process is simple and transparent, and configuring CI/CD is just another command line push from your existing git repo. The folks at Gigalixir are very responsive and have helped me resolve some troublesome bugs in short order. Their service is far superior to what my team setup on AWS, and the time saved on devops so I can focus on development is well worth it. I highly recommend to anyone needing easy-to-use devops.

Managing Elixir apps with Gigalixir is awesome. Creating new instances, scaling them and deploying new versions is only a few clicks or one CLI command away. The documention is extensive and well explained. The support is great and very fast (I only had one support ticket so far, but it was resolved within hours).
I think Gigalixir is the goto platform-as-a-service for hosting Elixir apps as it has been built and optimized to support the full potential of Elixir.

We've been running our community app on Gigalixir for a year now, and the experience has been great. It's a reliable, well documented, and well supported service. The team have alway been quick to provide support when needed, and this gives me confidence to continue to host with them.

The Gigalixir team went above and beyond to help my company out with a unique solution on their platform.
Tim, the Gigalixir CTO, assisted me throughout the process of setting up an AWS PrivateLink setup between their VPC (where our services are running) and our VPC (where our RDS instance is running).
I'm certainly not a networking expert but Tim had no problem helping me out with the troubleshooting along the way. Couldn't have done it without his help!
Gigalixir provides an awesome platform for deploying your apps! Every experience I've had with their support team has been very positive as well!

I started doing webdev with phinix and the deployment process with gigalixir was very nice.
when I asked for help with a mistake which was an error with my code (blaming them because it did look like a different issue) I got help the same day and they were overall very kind about the whole thing.
would recommend using this if you are not as used to webdev. even on the free tier which is what I have been using
