You mastered Shiny and Dash. You followed best practices and your data application is production-ready. Now you only have to deploy and host your app.

The goal of the 💻 Hosting Data Apps website is to help you make smart choices and teach you the skills needed to host your own data apps.

We built this website to be a one-stop-shop for all your data app hosting questions. Data apps simplify data-intensive operations by answering very specific questions. How you host your data apps matters because it relates directly to the user experience while also contributing to your expenses.
