  1. Create a new Vaultr Instance.
  2. Select the Type, Size and Region you'd like to deploy to
  3. Select the Yarn app from the marketplace.
  4. Enter the required "Base URL" configuration parameters.
  5. Deploy.

NB: It is a good idea to also associated your SSH public key with the instance so you can administer the VM, perform backups of data and upgrade the yarnd binary.

Once you've launched the Yarn app, go to your Domain's control panel and point your example.com or yarn.example.com to the new instance's IP Address.

Now go to /register at the Base URL of your pod, register an admin account so you can manage the Pod via the web interface.

Enjoy 🤗
