Moving from DigitalOcean to Scaleway – My first experience with Docker

I’ve decided to move my server from DigitalOcean to Scaleway. The reason for this is mainly because of the pricing. Even though DigitalOcean is not expensive, Scaleway is much cheaper and I’m getting more in return.

Let’s Encrypt

I have finally set this domain up on a secure connection (HTTPS). I used Let’s Encrypt service where you can get free SSL/TLS certificates. I followed this guide and it literally took 5 minutes along with setting up the cron job for auto renewal of certificates. I also set up my other domain fossari.is so […]
