What is Node.js?

Node.jsis one of the platforms created by Ryan Dhal which is made using the Javascript programming language and operates on the server side. Node.js can be run on various operating systems such as Windows, Linux and Mac OS. With Node.js, to create a website you don't need to code from two sides. Just use Javascript, you can create a website that can work on the client side (client side) and the server side (server side). You can set up node.js on KincaiHosting's quality cheap hosting easily.

Remember, the NodeJS feature is only available on Super Hosting Packages and above !

Run the NodeJS App Setup

The first thing you do in the node.js settings on the hosting is to run the Node.js service first. But keep in mind, you must have access to a good Hosting / Server via SSH. In this tutorial, we will discuss how to run the Node.js service on hosting through the NodeJS App Setup menu in cPanel. We recommend using the NodeJS App Setup if you want to install NodeJS-based applications such as Ghost, ExpressJS, ReactJS, PhantomJS and so on. Why? Because it's easier! You only need to select the NodeJS App Setup menu then enter the configuration only. How to? Try to follow the step by step below.

1. Login cPanel Hosting

3. Creating a NodeJS application

There are various NodeJS-based applications that you can make such as Ghost, ExpressJS, ReactJS and so on. So before installing the application, you must create a "place or container" with NodeJS in it. Because it is used as a basis for creating a website, of course. To create a NodeJS application, you can click Create Application.


4. Configure NodeJS Applications

Now it's time to configure NodeJS. In the section Node.js version, please fill in the version of NodeJS you are using. We recommend using Node.js version 8.10.0 as it is more stable.

This folder will be used as a place for NodeJS-based applications. We recommend that you write down the folder name according to the application you are running. For example, if you want to install Ghost, then write a folder called "Ghost" to make it easier! Next in the section Application URL, please select the domain or subdomain. Oh yes, make sure you know how to create a subdomain! If not, try reading How to Create Subdomains first. In sectionApplication startup file, just leave it blank!
