Rallly is 100% open-source and available under the GNU Affero General Public License v3.0 (AGPL-3.0) which allows you to run your own instance of Rallly for free for both personal and commercial use.
Official Docker Image
The best way to self-host Rallly is using the official Docker image. This image contains a build that is specifically intended for self-hosting. It is updated regularly but it is not guaranteed to be up-to-date with the latest version of Rallly. If you want to have access to the latest features and bug fixes, you should consider using the official managed service.
Though it is technically possible to build and run Rallly from its source-code, it is not recommended and we do not provide support for this.
If you want to try out Rallly before self-hosting it, you can try the official managed service at app.rallly.co. This version differs slightly from the self-hosted version in that it allows guest users to create polls without having to create an account and is updated more frequently but it’s still a good way to get a feel for the app.
Rallly is completely free to self-host but for users who wish to contribute to the project, please check out the pricing page.
Depending on how comfortable you are with technical things, you can either run Rallly on your own server or choose a managed hosting provider that will do it for you.
