Learn how to deploy your smart contract to the Ropsten test network and the Ethereum mainnet.
- Once you've tested your smart contract locally,…you're gonna wanna test out your contract on the testnet.…What's cool about this is we're…going to use the geth software…which is exactly the same software you use…when you wanna deploy to the main Ethereum network.…The difference is we're going to use a special flag…to flag that we're doing it to the testnet.…So, once you know how to do things on the testnet,…it's the same exact process you're…going to use to deploy on the mainnet.…If you look at the command line options for geth,…you can see I have a network ID.…
Through the network ID I can define a number…that will represent a network that I wanna connect to.…I can also use the testnet flag if I wanna connect…to the ropsten network or the rinkeby flag…if I wanna connect to the rinkeby network.…If you don't have any flag, it's goin'…to specify the ethereum mainnet by default.…I'm going to use the ropsten network.…This seems to be the most popular of the test networks.…So, let's go ahead and go into our command line interface,…
