I’m working in the last bits of my (endless) project, and I’m thinking about where to host it. It’s just a Symfony 3 application (PHP7 + PostgreSQL + Redis for cache).
Since 2010 I have a VPS at Linode, and I’m managing Linux servers since, at least, 2003-2004, so I already have experience with these works. I know how to setup Apache, domains, SSL, databases, backups, updates, etc. On the other hand, I can host the application on Heroku, pay something like $60 each month, and forgot about servers, backups and so.
What do you recommend for a non user massive web application? I mean that there won’t be a free tier (only 30 days trials or paid accounts), so I don’t think I’ll have something like a bazillion user accounts…
