Hi,

I have been using Parse.com for all of my App backend needs up until now... however i find Parse.com is just a little bit too slow to load data to an app, so i am exploring the different options for App Web Servers.

I have a few questions which i hope someone can help me with please:

01 - can anyone recommend a good hosting company for an App Web Server? Is their a key player in the market, or is there a huge amount of companies, all providing the same service?

02 - what is the best way (or is it possible) to set up an App Web Server on a small scale (low bandwidth and storage), with an option to upgrade it to a higher scale (high bandwidth and storage) WITHOUT having to change hosting provider and server... so that users don't actually have to upgrade the app because it's using a new higher scale server.

Thanks in advance for your help.

it completely depends on your app.
If your app would be having high number of users than you have to go to high bandwidth.
But you are trying to build your new app then it would better go for smaller one and then decide w.r.t your budget and number of users and switch to higher one.
