Create multiple environments from the same YAML file
Feature update! You can now create multiple environments from the same YAML through your Render dashboard.
Render Community Forum Live!
As our user base has grown, we've approached the limits of Slack as a Q&A and help forum. We will be transitioning to a real forum for most interactions that don't involve emailing, and you can get early access to it today by signing up at
Why you should use the forum instead of Slack:
  • Your messages won't get lost in the barrage of Slack conversations: like with the Slack community, Render engineers will monitor and respond to posts in the community forum.
  • It's a lot easier to have asynchronous conversations on a post vs. on a Slack thread, and even easier if you have multiple ongoing conversations with Render.
  • You will get notified via email or an optional desktop notification when someone responds to a post. No need to keep checking Slack for a response.
  • There are no history limits, so all questions will always be available and searchable.
  • You can get alerted to new topics weekly/daily, just like with
  • You can still have DMs with Render engineers in the community forum.
We'd love for you to try it out today!

Change in behavior for Github/Gitlab PR Preview updates
We've heard your concerns regarding automated comment spam on PR Previews, and we've decided to change the default behavior for creating GitHub/GitLab comments when a PR Preview server is updated.
By default, Render won't create any new comments after the initial comment linking to the PR preview in your Render Dashboard. You can always switch to the previous default behavior by updating the value here under
Account Settings
in the dashboard.
