Step 1: Pick a domain name

This will be the domain name that your friends and family will be putting into the browser to visit your website.



    Step 3: Deploy!

    3a: Go into the downloaded folder
    git clone ... from step 2 would have downloaded a folder. Go into it.
    If your url was new.n00b.city, then you should type: cd new.n00b.city
    3b: Initialize your project
    Initialize your project with the following command. A new file (package.json) will be created for you.

    const express = require('express')
    const app = express()
    app.use(express.static('public'))
    app.get('/', (req, res) => {
      res.send('hello');
    });
    
    app.listen(process.env.PORT || 8123);
