like have a full website with a database too, I was just wondering because I've been trying to find websites like this but I couldn't but this one seems to be good.

what kind of website?

Node.js/Express.JS webserver, I'm not really sure. I just hired a dev to create the website, and he knows more, so I'm also waiting for a response from him to see if it works

oh so not a website, just an API?

no it is a website only that it requires that in order for it to work. Because I thought that railway was just a static web hosting provider

express isn't a web server though?

Yeah I know it's just a node framework, I meant node.js. Basically we were using a vps before, but due to the ip that it was running on the website didn't work. So I'm looking for a another provider

node js isn't a web server either, I think you will want to talk to your developer and make sure your website is being served with something like caddy
