It looks like one of WHT's newest members is interested in starting a hosting business because he's asking if it's advisable to use cloud servers like DigitalOcean for his web hosting business. He's already purchased his first DO droplet and completed set up only to discover that DO doesn't support port 25 and so is blocking outgoing email from cPanel. He'd like to know if there's any way around this, and how does he explain to customers that his hosting service does not allow them to send email? Obviously he'd also appreciate any recommendations of alternatives. What would you suggest? Switch provider, set up a third party SMTP gateway, or something else?
Bibb2 wants to know if an email host is the same as a webhost? The email hosting he uses will expire at the end of January 2023 so he's looking for recommendations of a commercial Roundcube email host. He would also like email migration from MS Outlook but that's not essential. He has 2 domain names that he needs to transfer within a year. What are his options here, bearing in mind that he will need detailed advice on what type of hosting to transfer to and how to perform the move. Just use a regular web hosting account, or go for a specialist offering, or even self host on a VPS?

How data mesh could be used in edge computing
Enterprises are increasingly looking to deploy applications and services at the network's edge to improve performance and user experience.
As more data processing moves closer to the edge, it becomes essential for businesses to have a process for managing and analyzing data.
