FAXES Documentation > FaxStore V2 > Installation & Setup > Prerequisites



FaxStore is a Node.Js based website and requires a server (VPS, Dedicated) to operate. Shared hosting doesn't work

As FaxStore is a Node.Js operating website it requires a little more power than you might be used to with a more common site. This article covers some more specific details on what you need to run FaxStore.

All of FaxStores documentation is created for Ubuntu 20 based Linux servers. Currently we don't offer any Windows guides. It's highly recommended to use a Ubuntu 20 based Linux server for hosting FaxStore.

What do you need?

To have the ability to have FaxStore running using our installation guide it's recommended to use the following.

  • Server (This can be a VPS or Dedicated machine, Ubuntu is recommended)
  • A domain name (faxes.zone for example). This is used to get your website to the online world via a public access domain
  • PayPal business or Stripe account to be able to receive any payments.
  • Discord, Google, Twitter, or GitHub account to use for Login methods.

System Requirements

These are the minimum and recommended requirements for your system to have to host FaxStore.

Minimum Recommended
OS: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Processor: 1 CPU Core
Memory: 2GB
Storage: 25GB
OS: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
Processor: 3 CPU Cores
Memory: 6GB
Storage: 50GB

These specs may vary and be higher or lower, depending on things like, file size uploads, traffic and other general resource usages.
