Subscription Confusion

Hi all,

I’m a little confused about what subscription options are available to me.

The whole reason I have moved over to Bitwarden from LastPass is that I wanted to self host my data on my own equipment. I have Bitwarden up and running and have been using it for the past few months.

It’s a great product so I would like to subscribe to get access to a few extra features but on top of that to help in a small way towards the development of the project.

The cost of a subscription for the self-hosted business plan is too expensive and there doesn’t seem to be any mention of the self-hosted option anywhere else.

Plus if I create an account with to get a subscription, does that then mean I have a vault in the cloud? That’s obviously not what I want as I am already hosting the service myself.

Is anyone able to clarify?



It is mentioned in the Bitwarden individual plans comparison chart here:
