    Thanks for lobste.rs and the code that you have generously made available. I plan to use it to host a niche site. I was just curious about the hosting service it runs on. What did you use when you started? What is it on now? Also thanks to @stefantalpalaru for inviting me!

      What do you need?

        Just an idea of where I should host a Lobsters-like site on. Thought I would piggyback on previous experiences. I was thinking about using either AWS or DO. Leaning towards DO $10 plan now.

        It started on a dedicated server and moved to a beefier dedicated server earlier this year. I think @pushcx runs Barnacles on some kind of cloud thing.

          Barnacles is on the cheapest hobby plan at Heroku, yeah.
