I have been working on an Android app, wanted to host a Rest Api on remote server to get daily data for customer. Can you tell me about any services which doesn't cost much and can be used?

I have been doing some research and found out about Amazon web services and Google cloud Services, Firebase. But the prices are quite high.

Can anyone recommend me the possibility if I have to just pass on a sentence each day to all the app users. The no of apps which can be using the same data can be around 10-100. The no of calls is one of the main factor I am looking at.

Any database, Mysql, Mongodb, etc will not be a problem for me. I just don't think that using a high level database for a very small data is efficient.

It would be helpful if anyone can direct me to any services, or architectures for remote hosting where the no of calls are quite large.

  • Been a happy linode.com customer for almost 15 years, you have full root access and total control. – ivanivan Mar 30 '19 at 13:32
  • Not sure if you have seen Firebase Cloud Functions which is free for small projects and provides a limited quota for calls to the functions you make – ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Mar 30 '19 at 14:39
  • Linode looks like a very good option. Quota for calls is the main problem I am facing that is why I didn't want to use Firebase. Firebase is has good support in android, hope they make the quota of calls a little more. Thank you for the suggestions. – arc Mar 30 '19 at 14:48
