As a newbie to Discourse hosting, I’m trying to get my head around the hosting options and what they offer.
Is there anything I’ve missed below?
As a new forum, I’d only expect a small number of users.
- I need at least one non-standard plug-in. Topic List Previews
- I’d prefer to be hosted in the UK as that’s where my users are and the legal landscape is changing due to Brexit.
What are my options?
Discourse . org
- $100 per month - far too expensive for me
- gets me 100,000 pages
- Can’t install plugin unless on enterprise plan
- Not clear if this includes a mail server
- My 1 plugin pushes me into their $50 per month plan,
- European hosting.
- 500,000 monthly page views, which is probably more than I need.
- not clear if this includes a mail server
- $5 per month
- I’m not sure at all what that actually gets me though in terms of traffic and services ( e.g. mail server)
- Appears to need Mailgun as well?
