Host Plumi on a $10 Month Virtual Server (Setup in Under 20 Minutes)

Markos has added instructions for how to host Plumi on a virtual server with a cloud provider which offers a 1GB RAM / 1 CPU / 30GB SSD DISK server ready in less than a minute for $10.00 a month.

This setup should be adequate for a small Plumi site (more specs are needed by a bigger video-sharing site). It allows the server to be created in a few locations, including SF, NY, Singapore, London and Amsterdam.

If you’ve been waiting to try Plumi out, or want to get a small site going cheaply, there’s never been a better time.

This recipe should only take 20 minutes to perform.
