A couple of days ago we made two major changes:
- Moved from hosting at RackSpace to Digital Ocean. This move was mostly about the price. It’s hard to beat $5/month… Performance is great as well.
- Moved from Apache 2 to NGINX. It’s simpler and works very well.
Future changes might involve switching from Ubuntu GNU/Linux to Debian GNU/Linux but so far no issue has arisen to trigger such a move. The recent move was triggered by memory issues. We kept running out of memory. Costs are greatly reduced with DigitalOcean.
