# Add a node to a network

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

For consortium networks, you can add a node to run in cross-cloud, cross-region, and hybrid networks starting from the Enterprise subscription plan.

For public networks, you can add an elastic 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.
