You'll have your own VPS to run your Node Application, so everything remains private, secure and performant. All packages include server manangement as standard. This means we'll setup your server, deploy your application and get it running.
Once you're online, we'll give you instructions to update your application if needed, and we'll continually monitor your server to ensure it's online and running 24/7. We proactively detect issues and fix automatically, so you can sleep easy.
Choice of Databases
If you need database or persistent storage, we can deploy your server with almost any database engine, such as MySQL, MongoDB, Redis or PostgreSQL.
If you need something bespoke or specific, give us a shout and we can advise.
Our entire network is DDOS protected with multiple TB of protection. We monitor our network at the edge, so when a threat is detected, traffic is routed through scrubbers which clean and remove the threat, allowing legitimate traffic to continue as normal.
This happens all within a few seconds and is completely transparent to anyone - your visitors won't know any difference!
We use state-of-the-art hardware and continually refresh our systems, so you'll always be hosted on the fatest CPUs and most reliable SSDs.
We only use enterprise grade SSDs with the highest performance and longest lifetime to ensure your data is protected. We also backup your data daily and store it offsite for extra security and protection against user error.
Our infrastructure is redundant at every level, including the network which is multi-homed to the internet backbone and our power supplies.
Our cloud allows us to quickly migrate you to new hardware in the event of a failure.
You can grow your service as you need, from small servers right up to large, multiserver installations serving thousands of requests per second.
We pro-rata your upgrade cost, so you'll only pay the difference in package price for the time remaining to your next renewal.
Our engineers are experienced in the real-world high availability, high traffic systems. If you're looking for a large scale managed solution please get in touch, we'll be happy to discuss.
We're partnered with forestcarbon.co.uk to plant trees in UK woodland every month to offset our carbon footprint.
Our Datacentre is powered by 100% Renewable Energy from sources such as Solar, Wind and Hydro. View Energy Certificate.
We run our infrastructure at the highest possible efficiency, resulting in up to half as much power consumed as a traditional host.
We want to be green through and through, so all staff are offered green perks such as subsidised electric vehicles.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I use Node.js for my application?
The main advantage of writing an application with Node.js is that it allows you to use both the same language for front end and back end development. Historically, with web apps, your front end would be written in a different language to your back end. This obviously has numerous advantages.
Which database should I use for Node.js?
There are numerous database options out there when it comes to Node.js. Most developers prefer MongoDB as it's extremely JS friendly given it uses JSON for storage. But essentially you can use whatever database you feel comfortable with from MySQL to Redis.
Won Node.js run on a regular web hosting account?
Typically yes, you can run Node.js on any web hosting account providing it's installed and you have command line access to manage your deployments. However, optimised packages are always better and hosting with a firm like HostPresto who are highly experienced in Node.js development can save you a lot of time in the long run.
What sort of apps can I build using Node.js?
Node.js is one of the most versatile runtimes out there and in short, if you can dream it up you can probably use Node.js to build it. Whatever web based app you can think of from games to chatrooms, Node.js has the functions and capabilities to handle it.
I want to use Angular.js, is that the same thing?
In short, no. Angular.js is a framework. Node.js is a runtime environment. You'd use a framework such as Angular to build the front end of your application (should you choose to) and couple that with a back end often written in something else entirely. Node.js essentially combines the two.
Long time Node User
"I have been creating Node.js for a few years now and have always had issues with the major hosts. Typically configuration issues or simply lack of knowledge/support surrounding Node.js. That was until I found HostPresto. Not only are the servers extremely well configured out of the box, the support team are also highly knowledgeable when it comes to Node.js which is a rarity in this industry."
Simply nobody better!
"I have been running various Node.js deployments on my VPS I have here with HostPresto and being a long term customer I can tell you that when it comes to Node.js web hosting there is nobody better than HP. Not only do they have the hardware and infrastructure to support development but the support team are also highly adept when it comes to dealing with even complex issues."
"It's rare to find a commercial web host that supports programmers and developers like HostPresto does. That, if I'm being honest is what attracted me to them in the first place. Sure, the service and price is second to none also but it's rare to find a company from top to bottom who understand and support runtimes such as Node.js."
