Upload Node.js Website to CentOS VPS

I have a Droplet that I’ve installed CentOS on. I have a website I’ve built using Express (Node.js web framework). I am having the hardest time figuring out how to upload the web app to my VPS and assigning it to my domain.

I have followed the tutorial: To Install Node.js on the CentOS 7 Server

Can anyone give me some instructions on how to do this, or point me to a tutorial that shows me how to do it?

I have successfully pointed my domain name to Digital Ocean’s name servers and can ping the domain! It hits my droplets IP address and all is looking good. I still have to upload my Node.js Express.js app to my server though.
