So my shared hosting plan is going to expire soon and I am considering my options.
In the past I wanted to try web development with Node.js and after that with Rust, but unfortunately that is not really possible with a shared hosting plan. Therefore I am considering the cheapest plan at Digital Ocean now, to be able to play with Rust in the future.
I have found that I can set up my email exactly like it is set up now, so that’s good.
Is it a good idea to move to Digital Ocean? Are there drawbacks? Are there things I should be aware of before taking the plunge? Do you know of any resources to setup Rust applications on Digital Ocean?
I would also like to eventually set up a blog as well. I guess it will be difficult to make that in Rust so I would have to use another language/framework. Is it hard to have Rust applications running alongside something like Django or even wordpress (if I don’t feel like coding it myself)? Are there resources about how to set something like that up?
Lot’s of questions, but I want to make sure I am making the right choice
