i hate dealing with them….
I’ve moved to Amazon Lightsail from 1and1. With the increase cost of running WordPress from 1and1, I’ve completely moved off it and am now running on Amazon Lightsail., along with DNS management by Amazon Route 53. My costs of hosting a WP site and DNS should drop dramatically
Amazon Lightsail is the one click offering by Amazon that gives users, developers or anyone that needs a simple virtual private server (VPS) with a easy to understand and predictable monthly rate, which is unlike EC2. Keep in mind though that as the name implies this is targeted for “light usage”. If you need something more powerful, you’ll probably need to go the EC2/ S3 route.
Had an interesting issue with a client today. He had created quite a few edge gateway firewall rules with success. However a few VMs in his VPGs could not get out to the internet. After much clicking around and testing different settings, it turns out that to allow all outbound traffic, the protocol on the firewall rule needs to be set to ANY and not TCP.
I’ve created this new blog to separate my personal blog which contains….. personal ramblings, to talk/ post about all things tech. This can range from work related enterprise stuff, to cloud related technologies, newest tech toys and everything in between.
