Bad Practice

I've been doing social network projects, and lately I've switched up on my use cases.

  • For front-end, I've started running React through CloudFlare workers. At $5, using their CDN makes all the more sense if I'm trying to have the site reach users across the globe.
  • For back-end, DigitalOcean's Droplet is where I build my servers, minimum $10 since I'm doing PHP and composer hates 1GB RAM. As a developer, I like how easy it is to start from scratch with them on top of networking configurations.
  • For the database, I'm using DigitalOcean's Managed Database (PostgreSQL 12). Starting at $15. They're pretty reliable and flexible.

All-in-all, CF and DO are my gotos for running all of my projects. Cheap, fast, reliable.
