I’ve always wanted a Synology NAS, really ever since I first heard about it. When I found out that you could use it for hosting your website at home, I was simply thrilled. There are so many things you can use Synology for: backup, cloud, surveillance, virtual machine and, probably its most exciting use, web hosting. The great thing about it is that you can use either HDD or SSD disks, depending on what you choose to use your Synology for. SSD disks are more expensive compared to HDD, but they are silent (which means you can keep your Synology in your bedroom and won’t lose a wink of sleep) and the absolute best option for web hosting.
The Synology operating system is user friendly and quite intuitive. There’s also another NAS (from QNAP), but its operating system is just not as good as Synology’s. In my opinion, Synology is simply the best. It has a minimalist design and is built from quality materials, two reasons that made me choose it over other brands. Given my excitement and preference for this product, I’m going to be writing a lot of articles about it, how to set it up and use it, for whatever purpose you choose to. My goal is to make Synology NAS known to the world and give everyone a chance to use it to make their lives easier and get to the point where they can even shave some hosting expenses off their budget.
In this day and age, hosting has become too expensive for the average person looking to start a blog and lacking generous funds, not to mention it does not offer too many options: we’re talking here about website speed, memory, storage, simultaneous connections as well as the fact that your share your resources with others, whereas Synology gives you the opportunity to have dedicated resources in addition to great page speed, memory, storage and a very large number of simultaneous connections.
At this point, I’m still in the initial setup phase, but I feel confident that my Synology NAS DS718+ will measure up to any challenge. So keep following me in my Synology adventure and discover all the secrets of this wonderful product that promises to be a game changer in the world of technology and website hosting.
