Amazon Lightsail is a virtual private server (VPS) that supports a number of different use cases:
Simple web applications
Deploy a web application with pre-configured development stacks like LAMP, Nginx, MEAN, and Node.js.
Create and customize a blog, e-commerce, or personal website with Lightsail's pre-configured applications like WordPress, Magento, Plesk, and Joomla.
Run open source and commercial software, as Lightsail helps launch a line-of-business software, like file storage and sharing, backups, financial and accounting software.
Spin up a developer or test environment. Creating dev sandboxes and testing environments outside of production environments lets users test without the concern of breaking something.
Lightsail automatically configures networking, access, and security environments. Lightsail plans include a static IP address, DNS management, resource monitoring and alerting, remote access via SSH or RDP, and secure key management.
