Backend Server Hosting
« on: January 05, 2020, 11:37:02 AM »
Happy new year!

What hosting solutions do you use for your backend Servers (multiplayer and/or lobby system) and what language do you code them in?

In the past I've used generic shared web hosting and used PHP with a MYSQL database, but although this worked for some apps and my lobby/high score system; it doesn't run fast enough for games updates and is useless if you want to push updates.

I have been testing some backend services at home in Python and Node.js and they both look perfect for my needs but I cannot run those on my web host.

I'm looking for something that would be cheap (or free) whilst there are few users but let me scale as I get more players.

Any advice, recommendations or suggestions are very welcome.
