I set up cheap and realiable hosting for this site through Amazon Web Service’s Lightsail, which offers fairly cheap virtual private servers. The steps:
- Sign up for a VPS through Amazon LightSail. I went for a Bitnami instance on the cheapest plan.
- Select a static IP, then make sure that your domain provider (in my case, Google Domains), forwards your URl to the static IP.
- Download the private key provided by Lightsail.123brew cask install osxfusebrew install sshfscp LightSailDefaultPrivateKey-us-...pem ~/.ssh/
You can then correctly set the permissions for the key (such that only you can read it) then log in to your Lightsail instance with the following SSH command
And also then mount the remote server as a local OS X / fuse drive with this command:
Note that this command has a debug commands enabled, which should allow you to easily troubleshoot. Note, however, that there’s a lot of debug info that comes up.
