Okay, so I’ve pretty much settled on using Discourse for a planned forum I intend on making. I have friends who will be joining and hopefully, within a few years, be a fairly strong community.
Here’s the thing, I don’t get it. I mean, I get Discourse, and it’s freakin’ awesome. I just don’t get “cloud”, “hosting”, and “servers” etc.
Communiteq (formerly DiscourseHosting) has prices on what seems like page views and various features…
Bitnami mentions nothing of the like, rather, you pay for servers…
Yet, both do something very similar???
I guess I’m looking for someone to please explain the difference here, cause I just don’t get it.
