Deploying Nodejs apps with SQL database

I am having issues choosing a hosting platform that supports Nodejs and SQL database at an affordable rate… I tried Heroku but the pricing is not favorable.

I would like to get some suggestions from experience so I can start hosting and scaling my Node app.

Thank you :blush:.

Does it have to be MSSQL? What about PostgreSQL which is very similar? You could run both on Digital Ocean for $5.00 per month like I do.

Thanks you…
But is PostgreSQL pre install on Digital Ocean, or are the procedures to install it…

There are several articles on installing PostgreSQL and actually MSSQL (I found those too) on Umbuntu when using Digital Ocean.
