Let’s learn about RabbitMQ (a message broker) and some of the best hosting platforms available in the market.

What is RabbitMQ?

RabbitMQ is an open-source message broker that is easy to deploy both on-premises and on the cloud. It is used worldwide from small to enterprises. RabbitMQ is versatile as it is made available in distributed and federated configurations to meet various requirements.

It is written in the Erlang programming language and is built on top of the Open Telecom Platform framework. It began with AMQP (Advanced Message Queuing Protocol). However, now it supports various multi-messaging protocols.

Why do we need RabbitMQ?

When a service is expected to receive thousands of incoming requests and can’t afford to deny a single request, then it becomes hard for the service to respond within the time. To handle this, the queue management system comes into the picture. Using a queue management system, we can provide service to all requests coming in and execute them without delay.

Also, when massive traffic gets in, the message queuing protocol persists them all in a queue, enabling them to process sequentially and more efficiently.

Message queuing allows application servers to improve their response time by becoming mediators in responding to the requests received. Similarly, queuing is good for balancing the workload between workers and helpful when a message must be distributed to multiple consumers. Due to its mediator behavior, message queuing systems are called message brokers.

Thus RabbitMQ is also a message broker, which acts as a mediator between the sender and the receiver. It performs the job of sending and receiving messages. Moreover, it gives a common platform to send and receive messages and also lets them be on a safer side until it reaches the receiver.

There are two ways to get it started with RabbitMQ.

First, you can get a cloud VM and take care of installation, ongoing maintenance, administration, configuration tweaking, and performance optimization. This is good if you know the stuff and have time to manage it.

But what if you are not willing to invest time in it?

Follow the second approach, which offloads the hosting headache to the expert. Go for a reliable hosting platform so you focus on building your business applications.

Let’s explore the following options and see what works for you.


StackHero is a European hosting company that offers managed RabbitMQ hosting along with other tech stacks like Redis, PostgreSQL, NodeJS, Kibana, Mattermost, Kafka, Python, and a lot more.

You can get it started in around 2 minutes. Their servers are located in France and Germany, which will be a perfect choice if your application’s users are based in Europe. Servers are well optimized for performance and security, and you get pretty much everything you can expect, including the following.

  • RabbitMQ web interface
  • Automatic patching so you don’t have to worry about new features or vulnerability fixes.
  • Connect over multiple protocols like AMPQ, MQTT, and STOMP
  • Daily backup and kept for up to 3 months

How many messages do you need to send per second?

StackHero is capable of processing up to 100,000 messages per second.

Billing is hourly, and the starting plan would cost around $19 per month, which covers 100 simultaneous connections and 3GB for persistent messages and logs.


Get fully managed RabbitMQ clusters on your favorite cloud like AWS, GCP, Azure, DO, Alibaba, Heroku, IBM, and more with CloudAMQP.

With their control panel, you can monitor the usage and performance to troubleshoot the issue and set the alerting to get notified when things are not right. They offer RabbitMq diagnostic tool, which helps detect errors and recommendations to improve the cluster.

They are trusted by over 13,000 companies worldwide, including Doordash, Mozilla, Docker, Heroku, Discovery Channel, and Salesforce.

A2 Hosting

A2 is known for CMS hosting like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal. But do you know they offer affordable RabbitMQ hosting?

Well, now, you know.

You can get it started from as low as $5 a month.

A2 will be a good choice for your hobby project. They let you manage RammitMQ through Webuzo. You can choose to host in the USA, Europe, or Asia data center.


An enterprise-ready fully-managed messaging solution by IBM.

Its standard configuration includes the three data members configured to ensure it is highly available and designed to provide a 99.9 % uptime SLA.

You can scale the infrastructure as you grow. IBM Messages would be a good choice for your enterprise application if already hosted on IBM Cloud.


Most of the above platforms offer a trial or free credit to give a try. So, give it a try to see what works for your requirement.
