I'm looking for best options to host an ethereum dapp created using react and drizzle, with the following requirements:

  1. It needs to be hosted in a custom domain (.com / .net / OR .io ) that I have purchased.
  2. It contains both client side scripts (static pages) and server side scripts (which individually interact with the smart contract in the blockchain).
  3. It should have good scalability and accessibility by users.
  4. I have an old hosting space that i purchased long back in DreamHost and HostGator. is it possible to use that for dapp hosting? What web servers would i need to install in it (apache? php?) ?

I have heard about heroku, digitalOcean, google and aws... any specifics would be appreciated.


you could just bundle everything with webpack and host it on github pages. thats free and you will be able to use your custom domain

  • but does it allow server-side scripts using node.js & express ? i thought it was more for storing static client side pages. – Kombo Jan 31 '19 at 10:25
  • you're right gh pages isn't for you then, you should probably try heroku. – coderwithattitude Feb 2 '19 at 8:28
