I would look up dedicated servers - can do anything with those as long as it's legal, but they won't have api calls or inode caps. Inodes are amount of files you may have on the server.

sharedhosting - cheapest but limited space and requests. For not as busy websites. caps can be 250,000 - 300,000 files.

virtual private server - a little better than sharedhosting. This you can do some commandline stuff like laravel with composer packages.

But most hosting companies cater to php, mysql stack aka wordpress.

I would recommend digitalocean they do any stack which is they let you have your own linux box. Then you can install your stack be it whatever language via linux. But since teamtreehouse teaches languages for linux stacks. Then go with digital ocean or heroku.

Unless you plan doing IIS which is windows asp.net C#. So if you plan on doing a windows stack then. Look up iis hosting.

heroku has a free if you want to do a test deploy or something. Well I hope that helps. Yeah it's a lot.

If you plan on selling digital goods on your website. Get SSL cert because back then people can snoop through wifi connections if SSL wasn't incorporated and see what your doing via man in the middle.
