Installing NodeJS on a DigitalOcean VPS

Lately, I have been hosting a bunch of NodeJS apps on DigitalOcean’s latest Ubuntu VPS. There are a bunch of articles online on how to set up NodeJS and npm on a VPS, but some of these articles are now outdated and others make things unnecessarily complicated. It’s actually pretty simple!

I used this guide to help me set up NodeJS and it’s worked flawlessly both times and was super-easy to set up. I recommend it to all the other newbies who are setting up Node for the first time.

I’ve been very impressed with DigitalOcean thus far and I recommend it to anyone who is interested in setting up a VPS.
