Compile and put the binary on your server, start it, connect.

But that’s only sufficient for quick testing.

Personally, I’d put a traefik in front of it, taking care of letsencrypt and reverse proxying to the application.

Also I’d keep both managed by systemd or whatever init system your server uses.

Last but not least, hosting something on a server is a responsible task. Setting up firewall and stuff… You should prefer to find someone who helps you securing the server, if not using a managed service (PaaS).


thanks for information, But truly need a video or full guide…searched in google but no results.

If you need a tutorial or guide (written explanation), you in fact need a guide (a person guiding you), or some managed service that does the work for you.
