Looks like I’ll need to go with a 3rd party for my domain (if that is the correct term). The two I’ve seen mentioned here are Digital Ocean and Linode. Any thoughts as to which is the better for the person who knows NOTHING about this sort of thing? Linode seem a little more straightforward in terms of explaining what I’m getting for my money. I just don’t know if that translates into ease of use.
A second related question: I learned a lot from Stack Manager and Content Creation video on YouTube. Once I’ve chosen either Digital Ocean or Linode, or another service, is there a similar video (or plans for a video) to show how to get my content onto Digital Ocean or Linode? The YouTube video assumes a local server.
