@abachuk: You can set up a private git repo on your droplet and push to it: <br> <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-set-up-a-private-git-server-on-a-vps <br> <br>Also read my reply to Leo’s comment on that article.

I was able to set up git repo (/app/myappname.git) and push my code there, however after I pushed it, I don’t see it remotely. When I set up new local repo and clone remote (app/myappname.git) repo - all code gets copied, so it’s somewhere on the server, where is it and what URL it has in the browser (after I start node and do npm install) ? Thanks.

ok, great. I’ll wait for the article then. Thanks.
