How should I Deploy Node.js Project via Archive / URL

How should I Upload and Deploy my Node.js Application

With Cloudjiffy I can easily upload and deploy any Node.js app via Archive or URL. The given below instruction shows the steps that I should perform in order to get my Node.js application hosted with Cloudjiffy Cloud.

1. Upload my application package by clicking Upload in Cloudjiffy Deployment Manager.


2. Browse to my local file. The Cloudjiffy Deployment Manager supports .zip.tar, .tar.gz and .tar.bz2 formats.

Note that the maximum available size of the uploaded local file is 150 MB. If my application size exceeds this limit, please use the URL for uploading.


3. To add a new application package via URL (http://, https:// or ftp://) navigate to the appropriate tab and enter there the required link.


  • Upload manager just links to the file. So if I modify my file but do not change the link to it there is no need to enter URL again

  • If the ftp server needs authorization I'll have to put my URL in the following format:


  • If I select a file with an unsupported extension or my enter incorrect URL, I will get an error message informing of it.

4. Click Upload and track the progress of the package uploading in the Tasks pane. Once the file is uploaded, it gets listed along with all my previous packages and I have access to the Deploy and Delete options for that file.

5. Select the package in the list and click Deploy to button.


6. Choose the environment that I want to deploy my web application to. In the opened window I’ll see the information on my application’s URL. Click Deploy.


I can deploy just one Node.js app to the environment, so it will be in the ROOT context by default.

7. My web application will be deployed to the chosen environment in a minute. Just click Open in browser button to start working with my application.

    That’s all! Enjoy the reliable and scalable Node.js hosting with Cloudjiffy PAI.
