  1. Go here: https://nodejs.org/en/
  2. Download
  3. Install

As far as installing it on public servers, it really is a special kind of setup, so if you need to host a node project somewhere it's best to use a site like Heroku. Treehouse has a short workshop on how to deploy to Heroku: https://teamtreehouse.com/library/deploy-a-node-application-to-heroku
