I recently started renting a virtual private server. As an operating system I’m using CentOS.
For now I’ll use the server to host my websites, but I’m planning on experimenting with Java applications in the future.
It’s an interesting experience to manage everything by myself for a change. There are a lot of things that need configuration and tuning. Especially security is a challenge.
It’s not easy, but I’m confident I’ll make it work and help me get a better understanding of webhosting and Linux.
When I’m done playing with the server and have some free time, I’ll move this website to it as well.
