In this tutorial, we'll guide you through the process of deploying your Zola site onto the Zeabur. Zeabur provides a seamless deployment experience, with automatic SSL certificates and global-edge network delivery. Let's get started!


  • A Zola site project on your local machine.
  • A GitHub account and your Zola site project repository hosted on GitHub.
  • A Zeabur account. If you don't have one, sign up at here.

🔗Step 1: Create a Project on Zeabur

  1. Log in to your Zeabur account.
  2. Navigate to the dashboard and click on the Create Project button.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up a new project.

🔗Step 2: Push Your Zola Files to GitHub

  1. Initialize a Git repository in your Zola project folder if you haven't already:

    git init
    git add .
    git commit -m "Initial commit"
  2. Push your Zola project to GitHub:

    git remote add origin <your-github-repo-url>
    git branch -M main
    git push -u origin main

Replace <your-github-repo-url> with the URL of your GitHub repository.

🔗Step 3: Create a Service on Zeabur

  1. Back in your Zeabur dashboard, click on Create Service.
  2. Choose the git option to connect your GitHub repository.

🔗Step 4: Select Your Zola Repository

  1. From the list of repositories, select the repository where your Zola project is located.

🔗Step 5: Automatic Deployment

Zeabur will automatically detect that you're deploying a Zola project and will handle the deployment process for you without any additional configuration needed.

To use a specific version of Zola, set ZOLA_VERSION environment variable in project settings to a valid release tag, for example 0.17.2.

🔗Step 6: Domain Binding

  1. Once the deployment is complete, bind a domain name to your service.
  2. You can choose to use a free .zeabur.app subdomain or bind your own custom domain.
  3. Zeabur will automatically provide a free SSL certificate for your domain, ensuring secure browsing for your visitors.

🔗Step 7: Your Site is Live!

Congratulations! Your Zola site is now deployed and live, served through Zeabur's edge network.

You can now visit your website at the domain you've set up.
