2019-03-13 - Migrating from Webfaction to Lightsail
Going back to 2011, I've used Webfaction for hosting various personal and family websites, email forwarding and file storage. For $9.50/mo, I get 100GB of storage (which I'm not convinced is actually enforced) on a massive 24 core Linux beast, a shell account with all the developer goodies you could ask for and a full-featured and well-designed web control panel. Their support has been good the few times I've needed it, and the company just has a cool bootstrapped feel to it. Webfaction has a sensibly limited and well-executed scope that is rarely found in a business that's been around as long as they have.
