# Deploy a MeiliSearch instance on Qovery
The following is a guest post by Romaric Philogène, CEO and Co-Founder of Qovery.
In this tutorial I explain how to deploy a pre-configured MeiliSearch instance in one click.
Qovery provides free Cloud hosting with databases, SSL, a global CDN, and automatic deploys with Git.
Deploying MeiliSearch with Qovery provides:
- A pre-configured MeiliSearch instance.
- A free SSD storage.
- A free SSL.
- Optional: custom domain.
# Step-by-step MeiliSearch deployment
# 1. Create a Qovery Account
Visit the Qovery dashboard (opens new window) to create an account if you don't already have one.
# 2. Create a project
- Click on the "create a project" button and give a name to your project, e.g.
- Click on "next".
# 3. Deploy MeiliSearch
- Click on the "use a template" button.
- Select "Meilisearch".
- Select your Github or Gitlab repository where Qovery will save your configuration files (Qovery uses Git as the source of truth).
- Click on "deploy".
Congrats 🔥 - Your MeiliSearch instance is deployed and ready to be used 🎉
