Setup my domain to go to a node application with a different port?

I currently have 1 linode setup. I have 2 domains that I want to point to my node.js app running on port 3508. How can I accomplish this?

I'd recommend setting up NGINX as a reverse proxy. That way you can automatically redirect incoming port 80 or 443 connections to port 3508. We have a reference guide on it here:

Use NGINX as a Reverse Proxy

Thanks for the suggestion.

How do I set the domain up if I want to simply use port 80 for now?



I'm not seeing the following line in Step 1 of the documentation for setting up NGINX on my server:

deb CODENAME nginx

Here's a link to the entire sources.list file:

Any advice would be great.

Thank you.

Sorry I mis-read… I'm supposed to add it :)

I got it working, thanks mjones!

I'm glad to hear it! Feel free to give me a shout if you need anything else.
