Website is now on Github pages
Apr 9, 2016
going full cheapo and migrate my personal website from vps hosted wordpress to github pages
Let’s face it, why pay for hosting if you don’t make money from it? it’s sad but true
What I need:
- a website
- a page to serve as the main page for my domain name
- a hub to link to all my wordpress plugin projects
- and a few website projects
- something a little easier than handcrafting htmls by hand
- reliable website that is not hackable
What I don’t need:
- WYSIWYG editor - i’ve done enough markdown and html
- ever changing pages contents - why do you need it for a blog or personal website?
- commenting platform - i’m sick of managing spams, if i need one i’d use managed services like disqus.
github pages seems a good fit, and hey it seems to be much faster and reliable than a cheap VPS hosted wordpress!
what do you think?
