Do you use a VPS or traditional hosting? Been thinking about hosting my own blog.

@FOSSil_Finder I use a VPS. Here are the details of my setup (a simple blog don’t have to cost anywhere near this much)


@kev As a European with accents in his name, I cannot recommend namecheap.

@dcid @kev 1 year ago I Contacted Namecheap support because the auto-renewal failed. They told me that it doesn't work with PayPal. Okay. I tried adding my credit card. Next problem: Name on Card. Apparently the Namecheap website doesn't accept letters from the extended latin alphabet (I have two 'á's in my name), but it won't accept my card with usual 'a's. I tell support. The answer: "Unfortunately, latin alphabet cannot be used to adding credit card. Please use only english."
