  • Nginx Proxy Manager

    Docker container for managing Nginx proxy hosts with a simple, powerful interface

    As far as website hosting, just set up a few Docker containers: one for a web-server of your choice, and one for a reverse proxy. I recommend Nginx Proxy Manager. It handles SSL certificates for you in a super simple way (both the initial acquisition process as well as auto renewal) and makes it easy to expand to using multiple web servers in the future, or setting up redirects without filling up your DNS records.

  • Mailcow

    mailcow: dockerized - 🐮 + 🐋 = 💕

    You can self host email if you really want to, but it's really more trouble than it's worth. If you do self host, you have to worry about the consequences of missed emails if your server or Internet ever goes down, and you'll have to use someone else's SMTP server if you don't want your emails to go directly to spam. The cheapest good SMTP server is Amazon SES, which I believe is $0.10 per 10k emails. I've been looking into mailcow for self hosting an email server and it seems the best way to go.
