Hi, im setting up a website that will initially start out small but parts of it will need upgrading sooner then others. For example my forums will most likely remain small, my shop will hopefully grow to be a decent site and my video sharing section will prob be medium sized.
My thoughts were to set it up with the following $5 droplets and upgrade them as they become to small.
I would also like an email server on there somewhere.
My main question is, is this overkill? would i be better off putting 1,2,4 on the 1 droplet and the videos on another? And on a technical points would i just use a .htaccess redirect on 4 to have the others as subfolders? Would the ssl cert work over multiple servers like this?
