  1. VPS from WELL-WEB NET are great for website, price from 8$. High-speed processor, unlimited traffic, convenient control. Installing control panel (Webmin, Vestacp, cpanel and etc) – FREE! For registration you can use anything name/female/tel – him not check anything. The main advantages are that they configure everything themselves for free and all they need to do is say what you want to deliver, and the other is that in the Netherlands and the USA they give out IP from random networks, which is very important for me in the case of proxy! I recommend to try and not to suffer with the setting on the video – it’s enough to explain what you need and you will be set up and told how to use it. Now the special bonus – discount 50%!

  2. in case I have two separate MERN apps, backend in a sperate folder and react on another, how do i go on about deploying this?


  3. Digitalocean is really good site for starting first nodejs app. I tried amazon aws wich was way more difficulty and more expensive to use. And I got free 10$. It's very worth

  4. Man, every time I go to learn something on YouTube, there you are. Your videos are top notch. Thanks for all the efforts.

  5. kinda a misleading videos more like digital ocean promotional video should be more on ground of pure ubuntu hosting and scalling process !

  6. Hi Will! You do amazing things. I love this lessons. Watched all of this twice. Thanks alot! This is very useful. By the way, did you have some experience to use OpenShift cloud for deploy Node.js? I think it is very cool for develop on Node.js.

  7. Hi Will, I really love your tuts. I would like to point out though that Ubuntu is pronounced with the second "u" being like the "u" in "pull" or "puma." When the second u is pronounced the way you have in the past, it changes the meaning of the word from the name of the philosophy to "a man." "uBantu" sounds like "Those man" (sic) while ubuntu is akin to humanism (if directly translated from Xhosa/Zulu- not to be confused with the english word humanism which is a completely different world-view.) Thanks for the great tutorials!

  8. I see the "Sudo" instruction. Since Windows doesn't do "Sudo", can all this be done through Windows machine? 

  9. Great video, as usual. Worth mentioning, students can get a free $100 promo code through the education pack of Github.
