So I am shopping around for a place to put my project when all is said and done. So far I have liked Nodejisu (https://www.nodejitsu.com/) and Heroku (http://www.heroku.com/) the best. The latter seems to have a pretty good pricing structure at $3 for a node of computing power and a month free to test it out while I am building the early stages of my project. The former seems to have a lot of tutorials on how to set it up, one of which is listed below:
Basically at this point I am leaning toward nodejisu because it is free for the first month, however I know for one worker dyno, Heroku is also free, so I may be able to try it out too, but I have to better understand how much of my project will use the worker dyno vs. node in nodejisu computing power units. But I do welcome ideas from other and their experiences.
