How to Deploy Deno on Kinsta

Kinsta Application Hosting is a service that lets you build and deploy your web apps directly from your Git repository.

Preparing your application Jump to heading

At Kinsta, we recommend using the deno-bin package to run Deno applications.

To do so, your package.json should look like this:

  "name": "deno app",
  "scripts": {
    "start": "deno run --allow-net index.js --port=${PORT}"
  "devDependencies": {
    "deno-bin": "^1.28.2"

Example application Jump to heading

import { parseArgs } from "jsr:@std/cli";

const { args } = Deno;
const port = parseArgs(args).port ? Number(parseArgs(args).port) : 8000;

Deno.serve({ port }, (_req) => new Response("Hello, world"));

The application itself is self-explanatory. It's crucial not to hardcode the PORT but use the environmental variable Kinsta provides.

There is also a repository that should help you to get started.
