With Products being launched everyday here at Product hunt I am curious to know. Where your products are hosted in the cloud ? This would also help developers identify what cloud services are most reliable and loved for product lunch on Product hunt 😁

We host on AWS and find it pretty good, we also have a staging server on Heroku that is super easy. Heroku is nice but if you host your production server there it can get pretty expensive.

You are right @paul_vanzandt Heroku can start becoming really expensive quickly, AWS can be expensive too much there are ways to optimised which can be of help.

After comparing the various options and services, we determined the most important ones. A well-established global footprint was significant, so we went with Amazon AWS. Amazon can easily handle large-scale global traffic at any time of day.

The global foot print of AWS is indeed one of its strongest suit. @qudsia_ali did you also consider GDPR when making you decision ?

I'm hosting most of my side projects (e.g. https://applesilicongames.com and https://chessandchat.com) on https://deta.sh It is a very beginner friendly hosting environment for Node.js and Python with incredibly fast deploys. Main disadvantage is that you can't easily use a relational database for writing (read-only SQLite works fine!) but they have their own nosql data storage API. Great for hackathons or whenever you want to go from idea to production fast and then keep going.

AWS, yes, it's more expensive than managing everything yourself Yes, it can be complicated at times, but it saves so much time. I find that just keeping to the basic AWS services and not building a "Rube Goldberg"-esque system makes it much easier to manage. Just don't forget to setup billing alerts :D
