With Node.js’ growing adoption by the developer community, there is an increasing pattern of Node.js based application development. While using a Traditional Hosting for Node.js hosting is possible, it is usually not a recommended approach. As Node.js applications have specific environment requirements, it is always recommended to opt for a specialized Node.js hosting provider. Such hosting providers setup the right platform that lets you focus on developing your application rather than investing efforts in installing and administering the environment. With a dedicated Node.js hosting plan, you get the servers and resources that are leaner yet optimized to compile and scale Node.js applications seamlessly.
While Node.js itself is known for its several benefits to act as a great platform for end-to-end (backend, middleware, frontend) application development, it also remains equally important to identify the best hosting provider that meets your requirements to host a Node.js application stack efficiently. Here are the factors to consider when choosing a Node.js hosting provider:
One of the most popular hosting types due to its low cost and ease of managing services (through the hosting provider). However, due to the lack of dedicated resources, bad performance, lack of automation and integration with developer tools, a shared hosting platform is usually not recommended to host a Node.js application.
A VPS simulates a physical server with less resources and lower cost to the customer. Due to its benefits of offering unrestrictive usage with more resources, platform upgrades and root access, VPS hosting is usually preferred by those who have specific platform requirements that cannot be served through a Shared Hosting. Yet it still remains hard to manage and maintain with zero automation out of the box.
A Dedicated hosting plan allows a user exclusive use of the server with his own choice of hardware, platform, and resource allocation. As a result, a user has absolute control to optimize the server based on his requirements to make it highly-scalable and highly-available, on-demand. Due to the power it offers it's great for hosting CPU intensive services yet it remains the most expensive solutions and the hardest to maintain.
Deploy your node.js apps to multiple global regions at the same time. Increase the performance and lower your global latency.
It is important to check if your hosting provider supports high-availability and zero-downtime deploymens, as well as environment upgrades to latest Node.js versions. Additionally, find out if they allow easy integration of 3rd party plugins, libraries, and APIs that are required to execute a Node.js application.
If you plan to adopt or use a DevOps model, check out if the hosting provider allows integration with CI/CD tools such as CircleCI, Jenkins and code hosting services like Github.
Prefer to go with a hosting provider who provide seamless auto-scaling options and load-balancing during times of high-resource utilization and consumption spike.
As added advantage, look for other key aspects which might be critical for your Node.js application. More importantly, ensure that you opt for the right platform configurations, including,
