Running a scalable site in 2020

Running a scalable, fault tolerant, backed up, HTTPS secured, automate-able blog in 2020, for around €3,50 a month, is easier than ever. Background When I set out to start this blog, I wanted to have a cost effective setup, which would also allow me to scale the blog in future if I somehow got a load of traffic I didn’t expect. In this post, I’m briefly going to go over a few of the points around the features that this blog has for it’s incredibly low price, and hopefully show that in this day and age, it’s pretty easy to run a site for a fairly low cost, while still being confident that it can be scaled up and support thousands of requests fairly easily and efficiently if required.
