For people who want to make Single Page Applications and responsive websites using Meteor, hosting is a real problem. An average client will request a price comparison between Galaxy vs Godaddy. The answer is going to be a shock for someone wanting to adopt or advocate for this technology.
While Node.js may not be able to run on shared servers, why isn’t that comparison taken into account in scaling hosting services for non-enterprise users?
We are saying that Meteor is easier to learn, has a faster development cycle (read: the more sensible option), but are not really offering an easy, understandable and fair entry point for deployment. That message will be poorly received by some developers and business owners.
As a UX Designer & Hopeful Meteor Developer, scalability goes both ways.
