Everything you need to know about Strapi deployment options


Published on

Strapi gives you several deployment options for your project or application. From traditional hosting servers on-premise to PaaS (Heroku,, Modern Application Delivery Network (Netlify, Zeit Now, etc) and Private or Public clouds such as AWS, Azure, GCP or Digital Ocean, Strapi gives you the freedom to choose the option that work best for you, your company or your applications.

In this Online Meetup, Derrick Mehaffy (DevOps expert and long time Strapi contributor) and Jim Laurie (Strapi co-founder and CTO) will first talk about the pros and cons of the different deployment options. They will then introduce a new project allowing users to bypass their local environment completely while saving time installing Strapi instances directly on their favorite cloud in a few minutes. Finally, Derrick and Jim will also share SSL, domain and DNS best practices to get started with Strapi projects after the initial deployment.
