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.
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.
