Discussion on: Is there a way to deploy Node app with Netlify?

There’s not. Netlify is only for static sites, ie. sites that don’t have a server. Not in the traditional sense, that is. It does support serverless functions, although that’d require a major server-side rewrite.

If you absolutely need a traditional Node app, there are services that let you host one, although they aren’t free.

I like Netlify, so I am going to check out serverless functions. I guess this is the perfect opportunity to learn about this technology. Thanks for the tips.
