Best resources for Hosting a Mobile App

Posted 11 November 2013 - 04:13 PM

Hey guys,

Not sure If I'm posting in the right thread but I have a question. What are some good companies to go with for hosting a mobile website. Currently I'm using iPages just for testing, but I want to switch to something a faster and more scalable. I've been looking into cloud hosting, but haven't found any solid company reviews. If anyone could answer I would appreciate it.

Moved to the Web Servers & Hosting forum. This kind of thing does not belong in the Caffeine Lounge.

I would wager any decent hosting site works well - independent of the actual site being built for mobile use or not.

Yeah.. get off any free hosting and pay for it.. a1whs, godaddy, 1&1, a small orange, etc.

Why?

There's always places like:
http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/
https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/
http://www.rackspace.com

Digital ocean is a good vps relatively cheap for small projects. Just like rackspace aws and azure servers you have complete control over your server. They also provide a REST api for you to communicate with your server if you want to be fancy. However if you need are running a PCI compliant site I don't think digital ocean would be the way to go since I don't know for sure if they are PCI 1 compliant.

What more do you expect? modi123_1 pointed out a number of hosts to go with.
