I'm new to running and deploying a website. I've made my first laravel site (not an app yet). I'm paying godaddy for both of my domains. As I get the sites out, I wanted to turn the site into a useful tool for the people of interest. I know that there's many solutions but that's overwhelming and the videos posted on how to so are from 2 years ago. A few community suggestions would help. I'm looking into using forge after this is posted.
Thanks a ton!
I would like to know where people who are using laravel are hosting their domains or even if that matters? Is using servers from digital ocean even needed at my current stage of just having a website? With the fact that i'm trying to expand my website as I learn more from my market, would it be best to set up the lowest server configuration with a place like digital ocean and use forge to manage it?
I just didn't want to dive into the 1 year old videos and have everything be obsolete.
I am using this service as well and it works great! But maybe it is a liitle overwhelmed for beginners. Anyhow there is a guidance how to deploy your app: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-deploy-a-laravel-application-with-nginx-on-ubuntu-16-04
Honestly I have never read it before but when I flew over the article it seems to be mention everything needed to deploy Laravel.
Hope this helps.
I mostly use Shared Hosting and A2 has been the best thus far. They're quite unlike the nickel and dime À la carte godaddy options because most everything you need to create is included. Server Rewind rocks, but I really needed NodeJS and NPM. I also use Site5 and Namecheap. Site5 is pretty dang fast too.
A2hosting http://www.a2hosting.com?aid=f4a03c6a SSD drives SSH Nodejs and NPM are allowed on unmanaged
Site5 http://site5.com No Nodejs and NPM
NameCheap http://namecheap.com No Nodejs and NPM
