6. Deploy Your Site

Deploy your Doks site to Netlify or any other static web host.

Deploy to Netlify

Continuous Deployment (CD) works by connecting a Git repository to a Netlify site and keeping the two in sync. Netlify will run the Doks build command and deploy the result whenever you push to your Git repo.
