How to Deploy a Hugo Site with Vercel

This guide will show you how to deploy a Hugo site and get your domain set up.

Hugo is a very popular framework for creating static websites. It's fast and flexible. To build a Hugo site, start with a template:

Vercel is a platform for deploying the fastest Hugo sites. You can deploy your site with zero configuration to the best frontend infrastructure.

  • Develop: Build Hugo sites that connect to your favorite APIs, databases, and content management systems.
  • Preview: Integrate with any GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket repository for instant continuous deployment.
  • Ship: Deploy your site to every edge node worldwide for the fastest Hugo sites. Static files, Serverless and Edge Functions, and more.

Vercel has integrations for GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket to enable CI/CD for your Hugo site with zero configuration. Then, you can run automated tests for performance and reliability on every push. Pull and merge requests are deployed instantly to a unique URL, accessible to your entire team.

After deploying, your new Hugo site will get automatically assigned a .vercel.app suffixed domain. You can then add a Custom Domain on your choice, either from a third-party or purchased through Vercel.

  1. Install the Vercel CLI and run vercel to deploy.
