If this is your first time self-hosting a service, welcome. This might seem a little intimidating but it's not so bad.
Where to host?¶
You have a few options to self-host these services. You could use a VPS, a Raspberry Pi or any other [[Linux server]] (note I've deliberately left this link incomplete so you can see how this is handled by mkdocs) of your choosing.
This guide assumes:
- You own your own domain such as "perfectmediaserver.com", purchasing a .com domain costs as little as $10 per year
- You have a Cloudflare account to use as your DNS provider (this is free)
I've written previously about how to configure DNS for perfectmediaserver.com.
