Announcing Server Template for Busy Hackers!

Maxim Orlov @maximization

Hosting multiple apps on a PaaS like Heroku can quickly add up in costs. Not to mention the hidden cost of scaling. If one of your apps starts gaining traction, the steep pricing ladder will quickly empty your wallet 💸

A VPS instance is a lot cheaper, but having to configure and maintain a server is a huge time sink. As a lone indie hacker like yourself, you’d much rather work on your project and focus on your customers.

What you really want is cheaper hosting AND the convenience of a PaaS. Imagine a setup that saves you money, requires very little effort to get started and gives you an easy-to-deploy endpoint for your apps ✨

The Server Template for Busy Hackers does the boring work of configuring a server for you. You get out-of-the-box:

  • Secure server ⛑
  • Easy one-line deployments 👩🏻‍💻
  • Auto-renewed SSL certificates 🔒
  • Automated deployments 💫

You’ll be able to setup something that would’ve normally taken you days or weeks, into something you can do while drinking coffee ☕️
