Yep! You can pretty much deploy anything on DigitalOcean since it is a VPS. It acts pretty much like a dedicated server except just virtualized to have multiple people on a single system. Since you seem new here, you should probably have a look at the following to get you started:

  1. Learn the Command Line
  2. Getting Started with Linux
  3. Ubuntu 16.04 Checklist
  4. Install Node.js on Ubuntu 16.04
  5. Running Node.js Apps on Ubuntu 16.04

  • Hi Zachary_DuBois,
    i have already developed a application on node.js on my local computer (ubuntu 16.04). i am just looking for a hosting site where i can deploy this application and manage that one. my question is that ... "can i deploy node.js on digital ocean..". i just wants to confirm this one before buy anything.

Yes, you can deploy Node.js server.
DigitalOcean has great tutorials on setting up Node.js:
How to install Node.js on Ubuntu 16.04.
How to setup Node.js application for production on Ubuntu 16.04 is worth-look too.

There are also Node.js and MEAN stack One-Click images. It will setup Node (or whole MEAN stack in case for MEAN) on droplet creation so you can use it instant.
Only drawback is that One-Click images are based on Ubuntu 14.04 instead of latest Ubuntu 16.04.1.
