Amazon Lightsail tutorial, tips and tools

The only constant is change, said Heraclitus, the pre-Socratic Ionian Greek philosopher and of course he wasn’t thinking about technology in general or cloud servers in particular but if you were used to old shared hosting accounts — also known as virtual hosting — you cannot agree more with Heraclitus.

In old shared hosting you paid a monthly fee to an obscure overseas company, you redirect your domain name DNS to their server and you’ve got a full suite of hosting and unlimited email accounts, through a web based control panel.

At some point you start to realize that your web site is getting slow, your corporate emails are marked as SPAM or do not get through at all and your shared CPU utilization is peaked. What could be worse than that? The entire server is hacked with Denial of Service for days and weeks. What about uptime guarantee? Well… the obscure hosting company removed that guarantee some time ago.

So, your web site and corporate email are experiencing troubles, big troubles. Why? The answer is clear and easy: web hosting is no longer a small operation game.

Big players like Amazon came into the cloud servers game with the best minds focused to providing the best service at the lowest cost.

Good news? Amazon AWS Lightsail has everything you need to migrate from old shared hosting or to setup a new hosting account. Bad news? It won’t be so easy as managing Cpanel or Plesk. You may need to do some tasks yourself that were previously done by shared hosting support, you may have to learn a few new things, you may even have to type some commands “hacker style”, but final results will be so good that you will be happy to make this whole change.

My promise: I will be clear, I will be direct and I will provide step by step instructions to help you in this new path. I will also give you some advanced tools and tricks if you want to go there.
