I never had an issue with Hestia on Hetzner virtual machines. (Or any other for that matter.)
Create the VM, Pick a name for it, create A record in DNS, wait for it to propagate, and then follow HestiaCP install instructions from official doc.
Provide more information. Is there any particular error you are facing?
Either dependencies are missing. Then the keyring will not be accepted. Problems that are already mentioned here in the forum. The matching threads are blocked because the topic was partly 1 year ago, but is still relevant.
The “administrative instructions” state that it is currently being revised. The script that has worked in many other installations no longer works, even though it is the same system version.
This should work fine it will make sure all the things are set up.
Provide us with more Infomation. I am not able to start a server +30 euro / month for a short period of time and invest time for testing it in this special use case…
Debug info what doesn’t work and so on. If I call my car mechanic and ask why my car is broken they will also ask what is wrong. Same here… Unless you want to pay me 100 euro/hr I am able to help without providing the information…
Your problem is on a network level.
Try pinging 188.8.131.52. If it works, change nameservers in resolve.conf to 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 and try again. Else, contact Hetzner support.
My experience with Hetzner is excellent. I havent had a second downtime in 3 years, and 0 problems.
I first adjusted the source.list.
Instead of the standard sources from Hetzner, I now use those from 1&1. So far no problems. Also “sudo apt update && and apt upgrade ran without problems.”
Happy too soon:

Well, you need to install keys for the sources. But this kind of support is beyond Hestia, and you might need to pay for help.
Best advice is still to call Hetzner supprot. They have likely screwed up something with their install images.
