With Simple Hosting, an "instance" is just like a server. Simply choose the instance family and database type, and the size, give it a name, and your instance is up!
Simple Hosting is a multi-platform system by design, and we continue to add new instance families on a regular basis. We currently offer the following language types:
- PHP in version 5.4
- Node.js in the version of your choice
- Python (Beta) in version 2.7
- MySQL in version 5.5
- PostgreSQL in version 9.2
- mongoDB in version 2.4
We are in the process of adding even more instances, and have made a wishlist available to you so you can tell us what you would like us to add.
