Re: Hosting recommendations please

Hi everyone,

I'm a beginner Django developer. So my apologies in advance for newbie like questions.

I am building my site with " Django version 2.2.5 " and " SQLite 3.30 " in back-end. My question is -

# Do services like "Heroku", "Digital Ocean", "Python Anywhere" and "AWS" - have limitation on which version of Django  or which DBMS I can use?

I've seen this before with PHP/MySQL hosting where some hosting companies will limit which version of PHP or MySQL one can use. Is the same applicable to Django hosting in the above mentioned hosting platforms as well?

I will very much grateful if you can help me out with this confusion.

I have to move three Django websites away from my current VM service
provider by the end of April because he is going out of the VM business.

One is a plain Mezzanine CMS on one VM running Nginx/Gunicorn and the
other two are on the second VM running Apache and mod_wsgi.

I'm most familiar with Ubuntu 16.04 and hope to go to 18.04.

I think the RAM requirements are around 4GB for the Apache sites and
half that for Nginx. Haven't done any profiling.

I'm in Australia. I'm after stability and reliability and if I'm lucky,

If you have any negative comments about providers please send them off-list.

Many thanks
