Node.js hosting at Gandi
When should I choose Node.js hosting?
If you just want to create a basic website to develop you or your business’s online presence, a simpler tool like WordPress will be more than enough for your needs and will be easier to set up than Node.js hosting. But if your goal is to create a complex, dynamic website, or a feature-rich web app that requires asynchronous real-time updating, then Node.js is the language for you.
After choosing Node.js as your development environment when configuring your Simple Hosting instance, you will be all set to dive in to your new project on your new Node.js hosting as soon as possible.
What is Gandi’s Node.js hosting solution all about?
To start running your websites and web applications with Node.js server hosting at Gandi, you only need to subscribe to one of our Simple Hosting packs and select the appropriate setup options. While Node.js does not cost anything, you will need a web hosting solution like Simple Hosting. Free Node.js hosting is not available. You will then have access to 50GB of storage that may be increased to up to 1TB if you need extra space for the files and databases you need for your Node.js server hosting. In order to meet the specific needs of your Node.js hosting, as determined by your number of websites, web apps, and visitors, our Node.js server hosting solution is available in several different "sizes," or plans, from Advanced to Business. Because we offer you unlimited bandwidth, you will never be charged any extra fees in case of a sudden spike in traffic on your Node.js server hosting.
To help you set up your Simple Hosting pack, you can refer to our free Node.js hosting online documentation. There, you will find many tutorials and videos explaining how to configure your Node.js hosting to help you get started as quickly as possible. And if ever you find yourself struggling with a particular problem, you can always contact our technical support for help with any Node.js server hosting question you may have.
Can I couple my Node.js hosting with a domain name?
Whether you purchase a domain name at Gandi or already have a domain name you purchased somewhere else, linking it to your Simple Hosting Node.js hosting instance can be easily done through our integrated DNS configuration. Furthermore, our Node.js hosting solution comes with a free SSL certificate which encrypts data transferred between your visitors and your Node.js server hosting, increasing both the privacy and security of your visitors.
FAQ / frequently asked questions
How can I guarantee the best possible website performance on my Node.js server hosting?
Carefully choose a Node.js hosting pack large enough to support the traffic your site will receive. Here's how to get your PaaS Node.js server hosting online with us in just a few minutes.
Which Node.js hosting pack should I choose?
Choose your Node.js hosting from the following packages:
- Starter: Not compatible with Node.js. With the Starter hosting pack, the programming language and database are, by default, set to PHP and MySQL.
- Advanced: ideal for CMSes and blogs with a low amount of traffic
- Pro: great for dynamic sites or e-commerce sites with a moderate amount of traffic
- Business: for high-traffic e-commerce sites and blogs
Not sure which to try? If you don't know how many visitors will go to your site, no worries. From Gandi's administrative interface, you can easily upgrade your website hosting. We suggest starting with an Advanced pack and upgrade to a higher plan if you see that you need more power to handle the number of visitors to your websites.
