# Add a node to a network

Once you have deployed a consortium network or joined a public network, you can add more nodes to the network.

For consortium networks, you can add a node to run in cloud or on-premises. On-premises nodes can only be deployed in hybrid networks.

For public networks, you can add a shared or a dedicated node.

To add a node:

  1. Select the project with the network.
  2. Select the network.
  3. Click Add node.

The status will change from Pending to Running once deployed.
