To install a Node.js application on your website, you need to upload the application's files to the server first. You can upload them via FTP or using the File Manager.

To set your application up, go to Websites & Domains and click Node.js. On this screen you can see a number of controls that will help you manage your Node.js application:

Click Ok when finished.

If the application root directory contains the package.json configuration file, two additional controls become available:

If your application files include the package.json, Gruntfile.js, gulpfile.js, or webpack.config.js configuration files, they will be listed in the "Access to Configuration Files" section on the right. Click the name of a configuration file to open it for editing.

Once you have finished configuring your application, click Enable Node.js to start it. The information about your application, including the Node.js version and the application mode will be displayed below the domain name together with the Restart App button.

If, at a later date, you should need to disable Node.js, go to Websites & Domains, click Node.js, and then click Disable Node.js. Disabling Node.js does not affect your settings, and you can reactivate your application at any time.
