    This is my current host, and the amount of power that you get is crazy, yet there is still an amazing amount of help that you get through the online tutorials as well. The price is good too!

      I have been using DigitalOcean since they first launched, I love it so much I made a product https://snapshooter.io to help you back up your Droplets and Volumes.

      Its a super simple and cheap way to get a server and can scale to what ever you need. There are great tools out there that integrate straight in, due to there great API.

      Highly recommended product!

    You never have to worry about scaling if you use Google. It works for people building a personal website all the way up to Snapchat-scale applications.

    I used to use eApps for most of my hosting (still a good service with fast support), but now write apps and design websites that I deploy to Firebase. Free https and you can redirect to your own domain. Starts for free.

      Anurag SinghMini Founder. 2 exits < $2mn. Building.

      We're building, and almost live, with a mobile app based Chat product built on Firebase Realtime DB. Firebase definitely made it super easy to build for our use case and we were super happy with having multiple solutions for a mobile app scenario covered from analytics to crashes to auth. However the most critical aspect Auth has given us a lot of trouble. Phone auth in specific, when undertaking OTP via SMS seems to block out numbers it tags as malicious - the problem with this is that more often that not its blocking numbers that are perfectly fine but have logged in too many times. This is just broken and what seems to be an optimisation for cost, is causing a whole lot of troubles during dev and for use cases where multiple logins are required.

      If someone from the firebase product team still see this page, please help solve this. This is literally the only thing making us dislike and no trust the platform/

  4. AWS is easy, cheap, and reliably runs the majority of the web. If you can get over the technical bits it's a great way to host any website, app, or database. Plus, for some of the products, you get your first year free. S3 is the product you'd use to host a static website. I personally use it for my portfolio site and since it's pure hosting you can really add whatever you want with html to it however you'd like.

    EASY, BEAUTIFUL, SIMPLE! Deploy & host JavaScript, Docker, or static projects with one terminal command. Zeit (the maker), is like the Apple of DevOps and developer tools.
    If you make static PWAs or node apps, the joy of using Now is insane. It's so straightforward and easy – all you need to care about is the app itself and not the deploy stuff

    If you're not really interested in doing your own server management / devops I highly recommend using a platform such as Heroku. I've been using it for my pet projects, since I started programming many years ago, and it's just super straight forward.

    Namecheap is my favorite. If you're looking for something simple for your websites, it's perfect. For a bigger project, might not be best though. Also their support is fantastic.

    Their shared lite package with unlimited sites and storage highly cost effective and they don't waste money on print ads like hostgator/1&1, so money is spent on quality
