How the site works.. an overview

How this site works.

Also https certificate is issued by Let’s Encrypt.

And yes, I used the linux version of ms paint (kolourpaint4) to draw this. :watermelon:

EDIT: This is outdated now :yum:

Have you tried something like Digital Ocean for this?

Why yes. Digital Ocean was my first choice. But OVH was cheaper. Eventually we’ll move it to DO or Google Cloud.

Why buy a server, for hosting just a forum and a website??!!!
I wonder
Pardon me if I’m wrong

Because it’s easier to maintain, deploy and more secure.

Also the discourse forum uses quite a bit of resources.
