After what was probably the third or fourth battle with hacked WordPress installs, someone finally completely sunk I’m changing strategy and using static files in AWS.

The setup is pretty easy but not fully automated. Amazon’s offering is extensive and their pricing is incredible, even at low volume. I’ve moved this domain to Route 53 and will likely move others as well.

I think generally folks just use or Medium or something hosted but I am intrigued by rolling my own in AWS and it’s been interesting exploring what their stack looks like. I will be doing more there in the future.
