Is it possible to host a server(temporarily) in github action VM instance which can be accessed with the help of ip and port name ?

Basically I can access the public ip of vm instance and port on which express app is running. All I need is a way to open that express app in a browser with the help of url.

Thanks in advance.

Self-hosted GitHub Action is a thing and will allow you to do anything you would like to from your hosted verstion. Regarding this, but with GitHub hosted runners, Would the smee action work for you?
