Using Netlify for Hosting

I recently moved the hosting of my various blogs and websites off my own server to Netlify.

I was originally going to set up an S3 bucket and Cloudfront distribution for each of my sites but Netlify provides me the CDN and hosting features I need all bundled up already. You can upload files directly for serving or hook your site up to run a static site generator when you push to a branch of a Github repository.

In short, I’m not longer paying hosting costs and they handle all of the SSL certificate renewal from Let’s Encrypt for me.

Next up I plan to clean up the tooling I use for some of my sites and tweak things on here so I have more variety in my posts.

2019 is the year of the blog baby.
