Implementing a community - capacities volume

Good afternoon, I’m interested in implementing a community format like yours on my site.

Our site works for Amazon EC2 (S3, Route 53), but we intend to move from it to another service, we have not yet made the final decision, and I need to understand what capacities are needed to contain such a community format on a subdomain.

Perhaps you need a separate hardware for this? That is, connect the sub domain separately and the main one separately?



The easiest way to get a sense of what’s required to self-host a Discourse site is to go through the steps outlined in this guide: You can find the hardware and software requirements for your server here: If you test this out by creating a droplet on Digital Ocean or some similar service, all of the server requirements should be taken care of for you.

If you’d just like to give Discourse a try and don’t want to go through the hassle of setting up your own server, you can sign up for a free trial on our hosting here: Discourse pricing | Discourse - Civilized Discussion.


I can definitely recommend discourse.

Easy to setup and use.

A lot of people on meta to assist if you get stuck.


Thanks to everyone for the answers, I can already see that the activity of users from this community platform is really high :slight_smile:

I am also grateful for the links, all the information that I was looking for - you gave me, thanks.

Free period, which is mentioned here, will I be able to connect my domain? Will it be possible to check the test if our site is hosted in one place, and you have its subdomain?

i have the same setup. i host my website on a different server and use a sub-domain to point to the discourse forums.


Awesome, thank you for information!
