How to Deploy Web App For Free ?

philippurwoko profile image Philip Purwoko ・Updated on ・1 min read

Hello, I have express app using node.js. I have deployed it to Heroku. But Heroku free plan is very limited. I know some hosting that I listed below. They are free and they are not as limited as heroku and I loved it, but they only works for static files. My express app is using ejs as view engine. And I doesn't want to make it serverless. What is the alternative of using Heroku ?

Free web hosting :

  • Heroku
  • Netlify
  • Firebase
  • Vercel

Update :

  • - free hosting and real time codes
  • sendgrid - free email service
  • elephantsql - free database server

I really appreciate for all of your responses. Thank you

If you need multiple languages, you can also deploy multiple runtimes, and communicate in-between. The only problem here, is when you need a database or filesystem storage...
