# Install cloudflared on your machine (example for macOS)
~/ $ brew install cloudflare/cloudflare/cloudflared
# Launch your web server.
# Start a free tunnel
~/ $ cloudflared tunnel
You will be given your own subdomain on trycloudflare.com
Starting today, any user, even those without a Cloudflare account, can connect their server to the Internet with Argo Tunnel for free.
Argo Tunnel lets you expose a server to the Internet without opening any ports. The service runs a lightweight process on your server that creates outbound tunnels to the Cloudflare network.
Argo Tunnel will create a new URL, known only to you, that will proxy traffic to your server.
Secure access to your internal apps. Share your web server with others on different networks. Test browser compatibility. Run speed tests from different regions.
Free tunnels are not intended for deploying production sites
We want more users to experience the speed and security of improvements of Argo Tunnel (and Argo Smart Routing). We hope you’ll test it with TryCloudflare and decide to add it to your production sites.
Service-level agreement (SLA) and up-time aren’t guaranteed. New features and improvements will be tested on these free tunnels.
Argo Tunnel exposes applications running on your local web server, on any network with an Internet connection, without adding DNS records or configuring a firewall or router. It just works. When you’re ready, take the next step: sign up and add Argo Tunnel to your production sites.
