However, when I want to host NodeJS apps I should use a Cloud or VPS solution.
From one of the courses I did, one of the suggestions was to go for Cloud hosting such as Google Cloud, Heroku, Amazon Web Services, they require payment and I have limits like first 1000 requests are 10 euro per month, after that another 5 euro per 2000 requests, additional payment for SSL certificates
(where I can create my own). (I don’t remember the prices, but I cannot even pay 1 euro per month at the moment)
on the other hand, I already have a hosting account where I can host my web pages with PHP and there no limits in them, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited data (on shared hosting) and I already pay for that.
What I want to ask is this:
Because I really have a very low low low budget (I am unemployed at the moment, NOT looking for work), is there any way where I can host a web app for free if I use Node JS or should I go for php?
The reason I am concerned with the limits is because I want to do a real life web app project where I will:
create my own CSS styles, responsive, connect with Database, Use SEO techniques, use Social Media techniques, Google Ads, make it cross platform with React JS
and I expect to pull many people in my project and that’s why I refrain or I am concerned about using Cloud Hosting or VPS because now at the moment I do not have a budget.
Well if it fails, at least I’ll have more experience as a developer.
