This is an example of how to set up a Go application to deploy on Kinsta’s Application Hosting services.
During the deployment process, Kinsta automatically installs dependencies defined in your go.mod file.
- Create a new repository from this template (Use this template > Create a new repository): Kinsta – Hello World – Go.
- In MyKinsta, add an application with the Hello World – Go repository. The Start command can be left blank for the web process as Kinsta automatically detects the required command during the first deployment.
The app is available as soon as the build finishes, and a Hello World page loads at your application’s URL.
Web Server Setup
Kinsta automatically sets the
PORT environment variable. You do not need to define it or hard-code it into the application. Use
os.Getenv("PORT") in your code when referring to the server port.
For this application, the Start command can be left blank. When you add the application, Kinsta automatically detects the required start command for the web process during the first deployment.
