Heroku Node.js in the cloud (free hosting!) – via: Smart Mobile Studio
Posted by jpluimers on 2017/03/28
Heroku is a platform as a service (PaaS) that enables developers to build, run, and operate applications entirely in the cloud.
As mentioned in the first part, node.js was initially developed for the cloud. While there are enough paid hosting providers available, much nicer is of course to get it running for free! :). We will try to get our node.js server of part 2 up and running in the cloud…
Heroku is ideal for experimenting as their free plan allows for sleeping dyno instances that only get activated when there is a need for it (they sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity) and rain from the pool of 1000 free dyno hours per month.
