My Digital Homes

I used many digital homes over the years. When I say “digital homes” I mean services that represent the bits that I own on the web and that are attached to my domains: a domain name registrar, a hosting provider and an email provider.

I can highly recommend these:

(Except, some of my websites are hosted on GitLab Pages and GitHub Pages.)

I went the classic way from having all three at my first Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the year 2000, then using multiple services that combine those three services independent of my ISP, and finally realising that keeping those three services separate makes much more sense.
And even then I still went through a few duds. Some services were seriously bad, some were mediocre and others were quite good but went bust. I also learned that these types of services are never good when they are free.

I have been with my current digital homes since 2013. That is over 7 years at the time of writing. And I am really happy with all of them.

I will not go into any details because it has been ages since I had enough relevant knowledge about the subject.
What I like most about my chosen services is that they are simple but still powerful, have good documentation, are straightforward and transparent, are reliable and provide good support from people who seem to know what they are doing.
