Is it necessary to use Database as a service to host NodeBB forum
I wondered is it necessary to use DaaS such as redislabs or open reds to manage the database efficiently?
And I m not sure why Digital Ocean does not reply although I have sent my government issued id card
Is bluehost a good alternative?
It is perfectly fine to install the database on the same VPS as NodeBB.
Do u think shared hosting on bluehost is recommended?
Thank you for your reply.
I am not sure if bluehost gives you ssh access to install the required software to run NodeBB, if it does then yes you can install NodeBB on it.
