Moved to Amazon Lightsail

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.
