I was happy to use Linode because deploying the VPS, installing Cloudron and Mastodon were fairly simple following their guides online and videos on YouTube.
Not extremely code savvy, so wondering if it's a similar process on #DigitalOcean using a droplet or if you had a more of a hands-on/code heavy experience.
Any advice is greatly appreciated and have a wonderful evening!
#DigitalOcean has an easy prebuilt droplet that can be spun up fast - super easy! Cost is $14/mo.
I use an #Amazon S3 storage bucket - I would have preferred #Azure blob storage but it's not supported yet. I would recommend not storing your images on your server - #Mastodon will use a LOT of space FAST for images. S3 is cheap; est $1/mo ATM
I use SendGrid for my third party email server; it's free for as little as I use it for.
Hope this helps a bit!
@dreamsindigital good luck!
There is a YouTube out there somewhere that was helpful.. :)
The S3 permissions were a little tricky for me, but all in all it was pretty easy!
