Moving Clouds: Hello Hetzner
This page and most my other online stuff are now served from a small machine in the Hetzner Cloud. Previously I had a small droplet over at DigitalOcean. Using the smallest instances on both, I get about the same performance for half the costs. Since most stuff I run is based on static pages, there is currently not much need for a bigger instance.
The most tedious thing of moving all the stuff over, were the DNS entries. But all records got published surprisingly quickly, so that I had to wait for less than an hour in most cases. By now all caches should be updated and I shut down the old instance – of course with my fingers crossed that I didn't forget anything.
For anybody curious, this is my current setup:
- Hosting on Hetzner Cloud
- Nameservers from iwantmyname and Cloudflare
- SSL-Certs from Let's encrypt using acme.sh
- Sources for this blog are hosted on Bitbucket (automated build and deployment is done with its Pipeline feature)
