AWS or AZURE

Fortpress is available on Amazon AWS or Microsoft AZURE: the choice is yours. Depending on your existing technical stack, your knowledge or what you like, you can choose one of them, or both of them.

For users new to the cloud world, Azure could be easier to use and understand at first. AWS console is more "raw" and technical to start with.

Getting started with AWS

To start with AWS, you first need to have an account. Once done, you need to create a subscription for a Fortpress instance here: https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B094XY1Q6L

To start a simple website, the t2.nano is really sufficient: you will be able to create one page or more, use the integrated blog, manage users and more.

To start with a dynamic website, with e-mailing, API integration and more, it's better to start with a t2.micro or a t3.micro.

Once your instance deployed, follow the installation steps here: https://fortpress.app/help
