    Command line tools for fly.io services

    fly.io is great in a sense that you can setup a mini-cluster with managed database for free, which is awesome for personal projects and projects with very little traffic. My only gripe is that it doesn't feel very reliable at times: my website periodically (once in a couple of months maybe) goes down without me touching anything, which usually happens because they upgrade / migrate some infrastructure and something goes wrong. Sometimes problems get resolved automatically, but sometimes they're not; these are a little frustrating to investigate and you need to contact support to solve them.

    Hugo Quick Start on Render

    Then I got some problems related to render.com's free tier shutdowns the app when no use so when calling again it takes some time to respawn. Then begun researching and could also upload the same forked repo successfuly into a shared cPanel hosting even under a subdomain. Most cPanel hostings have the Node App applet enabled nowadays
