We utilized Amazon Lightsail to get a web application proof of concept up and running. It's easy to set up, requires minimal configuration, and lets us to concentrate on the coding. It's designed to help you get started fast and easily, but it's not designed for corporate applications or workloads.

If you're trying to point a domain name to a new home to stay, EasyRedir probably isn't the solution for you - you should have your hosting company handle that. But if you're looking to swap out the link the domain points to on a fairly regular basis, this service is the perfect solution.

  • Sometimes the Twitter links hosting the parent URL show old data from the previous links that EasyRedir pointed to, but I'm not sure if this is something EasyRedir is responsible for.
  • Their manager used to be super simple. It's updated and more modern now, but I think I liked the simpler version better.

Amazon Lightsail is a great platform. Before we started using it, we were using AWS EC2 instances as our primary servers after being dissatisfied with other providers. After Amazon Lightsail's introduction, we were able to reduce our operating costs, improve our quality assurance tasks, and provide much more efficient and better apps with our microservices architecture.
