Plone Community Questions 😲

"What’s an easy and affordable way to host a Plone site?"
Plone can be used for large, complex sites, but it’s easy to get started with inexpensive hosting. If you have Plone installed, you can use Plone in a Box™ to create a virtual machine (VM) in the cloud in just a few minutes. 

You can use cloud providers including Amazon Web Services and Linode. DigitalOcean support is coming soon. These cloud VMs cost as little $5/month, have enough storage to host content and have ample CPU power for a small editing team. 

Plone service providers can help organizations scale a Plone in a Box™ site further with replication, global caching, load balancing and integrations with other systems.
