Try Firebase. Better yet, take one of the many backend courses on Treehouse and make your own servers, the right way

Treehouse doesn't have any courses on Firebase in specific, but the API is rather similar and should be easy to pick up. The courses I was referring to teach you how to use a web stack to program a backend server. Treehouse has courses in Python, Ruby, JavaScript, PHP, and Java is coming soon

I haven't heard of Back& before, but after a cursory glance, it looks rather promising
