Since the web dev forum is closed ...

... I don't have a logical place to put this.

In the past I anted up bluehost as a decent domain host. Unfortunately I cannot recommend them now as they were bought out awhile ago and now have affiliates and customer relation principles that give me serious pause.

I use Digital Ocean droplets or Linode images these days which both start at $5/month. Digital Ocean and AWS have common 'images' set up for things like Wordpress etc and are pretty straight forward to setup or you can set up a blank server to configure yourself if you don't mind a bit of work.

With Go I'm using Docker containers, you can do this with other lang's too and I think they have common images as well, pretty simple once you work it out. More for developers with specific client app's rather than setting up a simple web/blog site though.

Yeah, mainly CMS/CRM type stuff. I do the lot, html/css, backend and db, server setup, deployment and maintenance.

The tech stack I use (and probably will well into the future) is:
HTML with Bootstrap for CSS and basic JS (jQuery) for front end
Go for back end server
MySQL for DB (although some of the nosql stuff looks very interesting, just don't have the time to absorb it).

The only CAD dev work I do these days is maintaining my own app's but I still dabble with some ideas when time permits :)

You could use AWS and build out your own web host EC2 instances (or there are a few other options that can work for web hosting there as well).
