Excerpt of article text...

When you want to publish your Xojo Web Application to the web, you have several great choices. The most obvious is to use the Xojo Cloud Service (http://www.xojo.com/cloud/). Their servers are RackSpace-based servers, optimized for Xojo Web Applications with security and (some) maintenance built-in. Prices begin at $49 per month.

Another option is from 1701 Software (http://www.1701software.com/). They have a wealth of experience in getting Xojo based Web Applications deployed. CubeSQL database support comes standard. Prices start at $15 per month with discounts for paying a year at a time. (Disclaimer: 1701 Software is an xDev advertiser.)

But what if you want to just dip your toes in the water? Or what if you need rock bottom pricing, but still want a cloud-based solution? Today we'll be looking at one such provider (see Figure 1): DigitalOcean (http://digitalocean). Prices start at $5 per month and up. That's $0.007 per hour for the base level hosting.

How to build your Web App for deployment

We're going to build a "Console" application, so in your project make sure to switch the build type from "CGI" to "Stand Alone" from the Xojo IDE / Build Settings / Shared / Deployment Type setting.

You also want to make sure that you have the Xojo IDE / Build Settings / Linux checkbox checked, and the "Xojo Cloud" checkbox un-checked. Now you can build your application and have it deployable to our Digital Ocean droplet.
