MongoDB or other NoSQL DB


Recommended Posts

I wanted to ask if hawkHost has in plan to implement sometime MongoDB or other document based NoSql databases.

I see that this type of DB are young, and no one is having on their hosting plans any of the NoSql db, but i think that this type of db will grow because of the their scalability.

I ask this because i want to start a project that may use this type of DB (well, is a game and the SQL db have some limitations to what i want) and i want to host it on hawkHost (on a shared hosting during development) so i want to see if is feasible to use this type of DB's.

Right now this is not something we've really looked into and I can't be sure we will offer it at any time soon. One of the major features of these types of databases is scalability and performance at high work loads with lots of data across many servers, which someone in a shared environment wouldn't need.

Yes, you are right, for using this DB's at the max the shared hosting is not the place, but for projects starting small, with the chance to grow, the sharing hosting with this type of DB's is the right choice.

Me, for example, i don't know if the game will be a hit with many users, i don't even know if i will finish the game, and so i will not go for a VPS (i don't want be under pressure to finish fast ). I want to start small, if i will have many users i will move to a VPS, and then to a dedicated and the maybe multiple dedicated servers.

So maybe you can offer in the future some kind of service for hosting only this type of DB's (i mean without web hosting and other stuff, only the DB hosting). It may be also profitable for HawkHost, considering that nobody is offering hosting for this type of DB's, except MongoHQ. I don't know, is just a suggestion.

And i think that for now i will host the DB on MongoHQ, or on my home PC during the development, and soon I will get web hosting the hosting from hawkHost (in March is expiring the current hosting, but i will get sooner to have time to move my blog also here)
