    Webhosting suggestion - Amazon s3 vs. DigitalOcean

    Hi,

    We are small webdeveloping agency and looking for better solution for our and clients websites. We are hosting aroiund 50 websites on FTP webhosting.

    We are looking move to cloud.

    1. We need to deploy from localhost to our subdomains shared hosting faster with Git or some other option

    2. From subdomain we need to move the site faster to client domain


    The issue is when I develop a site on my localhost i need to move through ftp, then show to client and after move from shared to my local machine and to client side. its annoying.

    Can you please give us some better option. THANKS!!!

    Why not just get a dedicated server and install SVN?

    I actually have the same development process

    build local -> upload to test server for client demo -> upload to real server

    It's a bit annoying. I either work on the test server continually (and abandon the local version) or I invite the client to a video chat so they can see the website progress through screenshare.

    THEGAME: would the SVN work with a dynamic site that uses databases?

    I just bought a $5 Digital Ocean droplet a couple days ago and LOVE it.

    Keep in mind you'll be responsible for setting up the server yourself. Basic setup, security hardening, web server, PHP, MySQL, etc. I actually don't even have an FTP server installed on it, instead deploying everything from a remote Git repository.

    It also makes it really easy to install and fine-tune caching software like Varnish, Redis, APC, etc. I haven't got around to that quite yet but it'll be interesting to run some benchmarks.

    You'll have to be comfortable in the command line, but I plan on moving all my sites away from an unnamed oversold shared host (I think The Game knows who I'm talking about) eventually in favor of a combination of mini DO VPSs.

    I...err...ummmm...don't know what you mean.

    On an honestly and for truly unrelated note, Tim Tebow sucks and so does his college football team and any hosting companies that share its nickname.

    This will give you the basics of commands and stuff in a cool interactive format: https://try.github.io/levels/1/challenges/1

    Sign up for BitBucket and host your remote repository there. It's free private repository hosting for a certain number of users (unlike GitHub, where you pay for the privacy). You can then easily clone it locally and on your server. The company behind it, Atlassian, also has some great documentation on how to use it.

    Basic commands: git add, git commit, git pull, git push. There's more advanced stuff you can do like branching, merging, etc. but that should be enough to get you started.
