Question

ASP.Net easiest deployment

Hi What is the shortest and easiest setup for ASP.Net project please? I have read and setup this this on a local machine before. I just want to know if there is a faster easier way. I like that tutorial and it allows me to learn more about NGINX. What I mean by easy is if there is a setup that I can push my project from my machine to a server on your side. As you may know from Visual Studio you can publish using ftp to a server. Can I just spin up a Windows machine on your side with IIS or something and ftp my site to it?

Hello, @sansari1

At this time we do not have native support for Windows OSs on Droplets. You may be able to achieve this however by creating your own custom Windows ISO image and then using that when creating your Droplet.

Currently, DigitalOcean only allows the deployment of Linux-based OS’s.

NOTE: This is not natively supported on the platform (choosing a Windows OS when you deploy your droplet).

We’d recommend that you add your vote to the Windows Server idea on our Product Ideas Board as well as comment on your use-case there so that our teams can better understand your needs.

Regarding the .NET core install, you could follow step one from this article here:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex
