App Hosting


Letting Your App Take Over the World

You’ve poured your heart and soul (and probably money) into building your app. After all, this might be your Angry Birds or Clash of Clans, right? Something this important to you needs a platform that provides a stable and reliable environment.

You need unparalleled speed and uptime, as well as a technical support team that won’t let you down just when that growth curve is about to hit. You want to focus on your app, not the annoying technical stuff that a hosting company should take care of.

That’s what you’ll get at NetHosting – the most affordable, effective, and easy-to-use app hosting in the world.

We Support Your Server So You Can Support Your App


No matter what platform your app is built on, we can host it on our robust data storage engine. From Ruby on Rails to JavaScript and anything in between, your app has a home at NetHosting.

Making sure your customers can get to your app is crucial, but we also recognize that getting to your app to perform maintenance is also critical. We make accessing your app as easy as possible so when you push out updates, fix a bug, or add a new feature, you can do it as easily as if the server was in your own office.

Do You Have to Use Cloud VPS Hosting?

When users can’t access your app, it means lost profit or productivity. Without a reliable 100% uptime solution, you risk losing users and revenue.

For those reasons, most companies tell you that their more expensive VPS Hosting is the only type of hosting that will support your apps. Not true! For many different situations, our regular ol’ $3.95/month shared hosting can do the trick just fine.

In fact, saying that a brand-new app needs VPS hosting is a little like saying you need a 100,000 square foot office building when it’s just you. Sure, you’d like to grow fast and eventually fill that space with employees, but for now, a one-room office is probably all you need.

Then, when the need arises, you can seamlessly upgrade to a VPS hosting platform.

Of course, the number of users you plan on having is only one consideration when deciding between VPS and shared hosting. Check out our comparison chart in the next section to see which hosting package will be more effective for you.

Shared or VPS Hosting for your App?

Shared Hosting VPS Hosting
Text/download based app x
Interactive app or game x
Large growth expected x
Dynamic code updates x
Low budget x
Need high availability x
For internal use or less than 50 clients x
More than 50 clients accessing at same time x
Personalized scripting modules x


As you can see from the chart, VPS hosting clearly comes with more bells and whistles – but also carries the heftier price tag.

Basically, if you’re planning on building the next Clash of Clans, you’ll probably want a VPS hosting package (and eventually a dedicated server when your app explodes). If you built your app just for yourself or a few co-workers, get started on shared hosting.

Of course, even if you’re planning on building an app to take over the world, you can still start on shared hosting. It’ll save you money and upgrading to VPS at the right time is as simple as contacting us.
