I migrated to Hugo from Wordpress, and in that process I have been trying to find ways to optimize the editing, building and hosting systems that I use for this website.
I recently decided to switch from Wordpress to a Static Site. This post is a review of what I finally ended up with for the most simple solution for my site. I had a few guiding principles as I worked through the process of setting this up.
- Free or Cheap static site hosting
- As few moving parts and systems as possible
- Easy to create or update content from desktop or mobile
- Supports SSL (HTTPS) for my domain
The subject of the email read, “TOS Violation: Spamvertising and hosting a redirect to a potentially fraudulent pharmacy site.“, how could this be? I had the latest version of Wordpress installed, plug-ins were up to date. Somehow a creepy bot or person figured out a way in and started using my domain for their own benefit.
