How to use Node.JS on our platform
Our cheap node.js hosting plans have a built-in application launcher for Node.JS applications. To access the launcher, simply login to your hosting accounts control panel and visit the “Extra Features” category. You should then notice the “Setup Node.js App ” icon, as illustrated below.
Once within the launcher, you can then begin to setup the server environment to meet your applications requirements. Within the launcher you have the ability to choose Node.js version, Application Mode, Application root, Application URL path, Startup File and the ability to set environment variables.
Once application variables have been set, simply click on the create button and your app should launch instantly. You can then view your Node.js application from the URL you have specified previously within the launcher.
After your application has started, you can reboot, disable, change version and edit your application whenever needed.
