AppHarbor is a fully hosted .NET Platform as a Service. With this, you can scale and deploy any standard .NET application to the cloud. This is done instantly with your favorite versioning tool. In addition, it’s also easy to install add-ons.

AppHarbor is used by thousands of businesses and developers all over the world. They use AppHarbor to host just about anything, from web applications that generate a huge amount of traffic to simple personal blogs that only a few read.


  • With AppHarbor, you get the latest .NET platforms which you can use to host your apps. But you can also leverage other popular databases for your apps, and that includes RavenDB, MySQL, and SQL Server.
  • You have a lot of add-ons to choose from as well. Examples of excellent add-ons include AppFail, SendGrid, New Relic, and Logentires.
  • You can start with a single worker unit a piggyback SSL option. When you’re poised to start scaling, you can then have additional background processes and workers.
  • AppHarbor also offers a build service. When a new set of code changes are pushed into the code repository, AppHarbor will take the code and then try to create a fresh build from it. If the build doesn’t succeed, AppHarbor displays a message in your console notifying you of the failure. The update isn’t pushed into your live site, and this prevents any bad code from accidentally getting into your live site.
