Hosting provider question: I occasionally need to host small, self-written, lightweight applications for tiny audiences (well below 100 users at peak time). Currently rust/node/postgres-ish stack but would love to just be flexible and be able to install and run whatever. Currently I'm looking at linode - are there better options you would recommend? I tested hosting on a pi from home but I abandoned that because my home connection and the ISP provided router proved too unreliable. Super happy about any suggestions!
@freebliss Have you checked out uberspace? Sound like they should be able to match your usecase..
@rostiger I have stumbled upon them but apparently forgotten, sounds very very cool. Quite a bit less flexible but way more support-worthy than all options I've seen so far! :)
@freebliss Sounds like any PaaS VPS will do. I use Hetzner cloud a lot because they are ridiculously cheap, work reliable, and they have online forms for generating data processing agreements.
I guess there are a couple of services like this, if you find an affordable one which worth supporting I'd be interested to hear about it.
@uniq cool thanks, even looked at hetzner this morning but I failed to recognize the service I'm looking for is called "cloud" there (which I apparently intuitively skipped and disregarded). :D
I was just earlier also pointed to https://uberspace.de which is much less flexible and less high-endsy, but sounds very support worthy.
@eaon woohoo danke!
