Backend language options

On the home page, I see PHP as a feature of the hosting service, but I was wondering if that’s the only backend language I’m allowed to use or what. I’d like to use Node.js if that is possible since I already know javascript. Can I install node.js if its not already supported? What other backend languages are supported? Thanks.

Only php backend is available on this hosting, node.js cannot be installed here.

You can use something like glitch tgat supports node.js


We only offer PHP as a server site programming language. iFastNet’s premium hosting does support Node.js, in addition to Python, Ruby and Perl.

And since this is a shared web hosting server, you don’t get the system level access to install and configure runtimes for other programming languages. You’ll need your own server or VPS for that, which iFastNet also provides.
