I love Wordpress for blogging targeting SEO, but I have a project where my favorite $15/month managed hosting (Flywheel) feels high as an ongoing cost because traffic will only be noticeable 1-2 months out of the year.
Is there an easy-to-run option using a cloud machine option like AWS Lightsail or DigitalOcean? $5/mo sounds good, if I don't have to spend time on configuration at the host, DNS or worker levels.
Or is there an alternative system with a strong SEO component? Maybe a static site generator? In that case I'd also want to ensure I have a nice-enough UI, using something like Tailwind or Bootstrap.
It's super important to me that this have near-zero upkeep needs. I just need to get some content out and have it be relatively presentable. And if it's not Wordpress, I need to scan content like the Yoast SEO plugin does, to ensure I'm following all best practices.
