Node.js Hosting suggestion

Posted 10 December 2018 - 05:38 PM

I'm planning on building some Node.js projects coming up and I'd like to host them somewhere. Some of these projects are going to use web sockets, so I'll need to be able to expose a port - preferably several ports. Unfortunately, this immediately rules out Heroku. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced linux hosting environment for something like this?

Also, my isp blocks all but a couple ports, but maybe they'd unblock them if I asked, I dunno. Since it's small traffic, I could theoretically run it off of a Raspberry Pi, but then I have to harden it and blah - sounds like a hassle.

AWS will let you open ports? That's awesome!

Have you tried lightsail?

Maybe it's a good idea if you consider getting a VPS with all ports open and full root access enabled?

It's even slightly better than that. AWS allows you to write security policies, so you can apply a rule-set to a server, rather than manually opening each port. If you're going to build a balanced infestructure, this is a fantastic short cut ;)

That's great to hear! Thanks!!

Without getting too meta, this is a perfect example of why I don't have an issue with necro-posting. Even if my issue isn't as pressing today as it was 4 months ago, this additional info is useful and it'll definitely help guide future decisions.
