76. Heroku for Production Servers

ATTENTION: Please note a subtle update to the final terminal command in the notes below. Instead of 'heroku create', you should enter 'heroku create --stack heroku-16'.

  • Sending out emails from development environments with Rails is not common by default.
  • Thus, it is a good time to set up a production server. By setting up a free Heroku account, we will have a real, live version of our site hosted on professional-grade servers.

###Terminal

heroku --version
heroku login
