Node.JS is an open-source, cross-platform Javascript run-time environment for executing Javascript code server-side. It is commonly used to build scalable network applications due to its asynchronous, event-driven system. This guide will show you how to deploy a SkySilk VPS running Node.JS.


How to set up a Node.JS server with SkySilk VPS in 8 Steps


If you want to restart the install process on your VM you can use the following command; 'turnkey-init'.


1. Deploy a SkySilk Node.JS VPS Template.


2. Login to your VPS. SSH into your VPS using root@ipaddress and the password you set in the SkySilk dashboard. If you are connecting from a Unix-like machine (Mac OS or Linux), or by using PuTTY with Windows then the command to connect is simply:

ssh [user]@[ip address]


where [user] is your username, typically root, and [ip address] is the IP address of the virtual machine.

# for example:

ssh root@204.44.81.xx
