As of September the 20th, my site is hosted on Microsoft Azure, more specifically an Azure Storage account, using the Static Website feature! By making my site have a static front-end, the need to run it on script-enabled web-servers is gone and it can run on pretty much any host you can think of. Also by removing access to the dynamic scripts (WordPress back-end), the site’s attack surface decreased to 1/10 on an imaginary scale.
Previously my site was hosted on a donated cPanel web-host and for the small traffic my site gets, it was mostly fine. The donor however indicated they could no long provide the service and thus my hunt for a replacement host started. I wanted something new and a solution that would give me more peace-of-mind when it comes to maintaining the site. Having an unpatched WordPress install is a bad idea and the number of exploits of the worlds most popular blogging solution has skyrocketed lately.
So I could just get another PHP webhost or an Azure Web App to run my site, done deal but that still means I have to look after the software versions, plugin updates et cetera. I briefly considered using a managed WordPress host but they end up costing your a fair buck, especially if you want to host plugins or run big themes. A big trend in the open-source community is to export/generate a static-only version of their content and host it on GitHub Pages or ReadTheDocs.
