To quickly deploy Next.js on web hosting, you can follow the steps below:


Step 1: Set up your Next.js project

  • Make sure you have Node.js and npm installed on your system.
  • Create a new Next.js project by running the following command in your terminal: npx create-next-app my-next-app
  • Change directory to your project folder: cd my-next-app


Step 2: Build the Next.js app

  • Build your Next.js app using the following command: npm run build This will create an optimized production build of your app in the .next folder.


Step 3: Choose a web hosting provider

  • Select a web hosting provider that supports Node.js applications. Some popular options are Vercel, Heroku, and Netlify.


Step 4: Deploy the app Option 1: Vercel (formerly known as Zeit)

  • Vercel provides an easy deployment process for Next.js apps with zero configuration.
  • Install the Vercel CLI globally: npm i -g vercel
  • Deploy your app by running the following command in your project directory: vercel
  • Follow the prompts to sign in to your Vercel account and choose the deployment options.
  • Once the deployment is complete, you will receive a deployment URL.


Option 2: Heroku

  • Create a new Heroku app by running the following command in your project directory: heroku create my-next-app
  • Add a Node.js buildpack to your Heroku app. This can be done using the following command: heroku buildpacks:add --index 1 heroku/nodejs
  • Deploy your app to Heroku by running the following command: git push heroku main
  • Once the deployment is complete, you will receive a deployment URL.


Option 3: Netlify

  • Sign up for a Netlify account and create a new site from Git.
  • Connect your app's repository to Netlify and configure the deployment settings.
  • Build settings: Build command: npm run build Publish directory: .next
  • Once the deployment is complete, you will receive a deployment URL.


That's it! Your Next.js app should now be deployed and accessible from the provided deployment URL.
