Deploy your Shiny applications on the Web in minutes

Deploy your Shiny applications on the Web in minutes

Easy to Use

Deploying your Shiny applications could not be easier. You don’t need to own a server or know how to configure a firewall to deploy and manage your applications in the cloud. No hardware, installation, or annual purchase contract required.

Secure is secure by design. Each Shiny application runs in its own protected environment and access is always SSL encrypted. Standard and Professional plans offer user authentication, preventing anonymous visitors from being able to access your applications. Users are required to authenticate through one of the supported systems which currently include Google, GitHub, or a account. Click here to read more about authentication.


We bring our IT team so you won’t have to bring yours. Be confident your compute resources will scale effortlessly as your Shiny applications and users increase. You can also tune the performance of your applications by controlling the resources available to them. This includes the ability to run multiple R processes in a given instance, along with the ability to add additional instances to increase your application performance even further. Shinyapps can scale to meet any workload. Click here to read more about scaling and performance tuning.
