The SnowLab website you are viewing right now is one of my pet projects for learning how to self-host a website. It is using DirectAdmin as a control panel, WordPress for my CMS, Lightspeed Enterprise as the webserver, and Redis In-Memory Object Caching.
All of my sites are proxied through Cloudflare, for DDOS protection and additional performance optimizations. This site is running on an Ubuntu 22.04 LTS VM (4c/4gb) on my R730 Server.
