Intuit Hosting Program

Intuit offers an Authorized Commercial Hosting Program.

This program allows you to have your licensed copy (or copies) of QuickBooks Desktop software installed on servers in an authorized remote hosting facility. This means that you access your QuickBooks product on a virtual desktop, via a secure connection and web browser.

If you have your QuickBooks Desktop product hosted, your authorized commercial host should be your initial point of contact for any needs related to hosting setup, installation, troubleshooting hosting issues, and other basic technical support needs. Because deployment can vary from host to host it is best to contact your host first.

Licensing and add-on services:

  • If you are a QuickBooks end user and your QuickBooks software is hosted, you must contact your Host for any licensing needs.
  • If you are a Host, you must contact Intuit to associate your customer's license with their product or to add seats or services.

For QuickBooks Desktop specific support (not related to the hosting environment or deployment), Intuit's support policies are the same whether you have your QuickBooks Desktop product installed on your own system or choose to have it hosted by one of Intuit's authorized commercial hosts. 

Note: Due to the differences in computer permissions and system environments, we may require your IT administrator and/or a representative from the hosting company to be available on the call.

Depending on your support need, fees may apply. Please see Intuit QuickBooks accounting software support policies for more information on Intuit's support policies.

Detailed information

The Commercial Hosting Program is designed for independent professional data centers and remote hosting companies to provide application hosting services to QuickBooks end users, (including accountants, bookkeepers, and other entities) that wish to install and access their QuickBooks desktop software via a remote hosting facility.

To become Intuit-Authorized, the hosting company must undergo an application process and an independent third-party accreditation for each selected host.
