Matterport hosting plans – what are your options?
It’s not possible to host a Matteport virtual tour on your own servers, but the Matterport hosting plans offer several options depending on what type of business you have, what type of camera your virtual tour was captured using, and how many virtual tours you have hosted.
Matterport ‘free’ hosting plan – for 1 Richoh or iPhone virtual tour
If you just have one virtual tour which was created using an iPhone or Insta360 ONE X or Ricoh 360-degree camera, you have the option of the Matterport free hosting plan.
This is Matterport hosting is ‘free forever’. There are Matterport hosting features you don’t get such as floor plans, and a virtual tour created using these cameras has pretty poor image quality compared to what you could achieve with a Matterport camera. However, for those looking for a very cheap virtual tour but don’t need good image quality, this might be the option for you
Matterport starter – up to 5 Richoh or iPhone virtual tours
If you have up to 5 virtual tours which were created using an iPhone or Insta360 ONE X or Ricoh 360-degree camera, you have the next level virtual tour hosting option direct with Matterport – the ‘starter’.
Again, this suits those who aren’t really too fussed about good image quality and simply want cheap Matterport hosting. However, it will still cost you over £95 per year but can be cost-effective for more than 1 Richoh or iPhone virtual tour
