How to deploy .NET Background Service on a Droplet?

Hi there. New to Digital Ocean and couldn’t find much info on this topic. I have a .NET 6 windows background service I’m thinking about using Digital Ocean for. Has anyone tried this? Can I use a droplet for it? Any guidance or tutorials available on how to do the configuration and start the background service?

Much appreciated.

Hi there,

I could suggest the following tutorial:

How To Deploy an ASP.NET Core Application

Besides that, an alternative option is to package your application in a Docker image and then deploy it as a Docker container.

Hope that this helps!
