Nodejs npmstart heroku etc

Hi. First post and I am new to nodejs and JS - although I do work with hugo and Css
as a hobbyist… so this is a beginner post… dont hate me :smiley:

Just wondering tho… since I started the 100daysofcode (just a fortnight ago) I threw myself into js and chose a twitter bot as my first project… happy when it worked so now I’m trying to do another using mysql to pull youtube links from a mysql db off ubuntu and post…

I’ll work my way through that… that is not the question.

The question is do we need sites like heroku to push to netlify for these sort of things or can netlify itself run the npmstart commands and/or offer the keep alive rather than the tools offered by heroku or the likes of uptimeŕobot?

Not after tuts, I’m enjoying my own learning journey… just wondering if this sort of thing is possible and any pointers.

Many thanks!
