Moved from shared hosting to VPS 🚀

Nikola Stojković @stojkovic

Shared hosting is great in terms of the ease of use (cPanel), "unlimited" amounts of everything (they promise the 95% of uptime and there is no SLA or anything), but had a limit of 250k files allowed on that shared cloud space which was allocated to me. 😅 Not to mention it goes down every now and then on daily basis.

Speed was not that great whatsoever. There was also limited support for the SSH. I had to post requests for anything that was not mentioned in the offer. They would smirk but eventually allow me the use of X, Y or Z. It all took approximately a day of bouncing emails per one request, and I had to do them one by one because 1 email = support ticket. 😡

So, I remembered that I had that one little VPS sitting around in the dark which has 20 gigs of storage, 2GHz of CPU and 2 gigs of RAM available. Yeah, it's not that much, but should suite me fine for the MVP ✨ #smeagol-impression# I'll upgrade it as the need arise for sure.
