Building and Hosting a Blazor Web Application on ServerStadium


Deploying a Blazor Web Application on ServerStadium’s VMs or dedicated servers provides an efficient and powerful platform for web development. Blazor’s capability to run C# in the browser enables full-stack development with .NET, making it a prime choice for applications requiring rich interactive UIs. Hosting on ServerStadium ensures robust performance, reliability, and scalability, crucial for modern web applications.


  • A ServerStadium VM or dedicated server.
  • Knowledge of C# and .NET framework.
  • .NET SDK and runtime installed on your development machine and server.
  • A published Blazor application ready for deployment.

Step 1: Prepare Your ServerStadium Server

  1. Choose a Server: Opt for a ServerStadium server that suits the demands of your web application.
  2. Server Setup:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade

Step 2: Install .NET on the Server

  1. Install .NET SDK and Runtime:

    wget [dt_code]

     -O packages-microsoft-prod.deb
    sudo dpkg -i packages-microsoft-prod.deb
    sudo apt-get update; \
    sudo apt-get install -y apt-transport-https && \
    sudo apt-get update && \
    sudo apt-get install -y dotnet-sdk-5.0 [/dt_code]

    Also, install the ASP.NET Core runtime:

    sudo apt-get install -y aspnetcore-runtime-5.0

Step 3: Publish Your Blazor Application

  1. Publish the Application Locally:

    In your local environment, publish your Blazor application:

    dotnet publish -c Release

  2. Transfer the Published App:

    Use SCP, FTP, or a similar method to upload your published application to your ServerStadium server.

Step 4: Host the Application on the Server

  1. Deploy the Application:

    On the server, move the published app to a suitable directory, such as /var/www/myblazorapp.

  2. Configure a Web Server:

    Set up a web server like Nginx or Apache to host the Blazor app. Configure reverse proxy settings to forward requests to the Kestrel server running the Blazor app.

Step 5: Run the Blazor Application

  1. Start the Blazor App:

    Navigate to the app’s directory and run it:

    dotnet MyBlazorApp.dll


Your Blazor web application is now running on a ServerStadium server, harnessing the power and efficiency of .NET for rich web UI development.
