Articles like this are dangerous. No mention of firewall settings, securing the server, automatic security updates, nothing.

Setting up servers is not something you should do carelessly, even if it's not for production.

You may not care if your server is hacked, but it then becomes a vector for outgoing attacks.

If you don't know how to do this properly, hire someone or use a service.

Purpose of this article is to get beginners started. I have talked to many new developers who got scared after all these setups and because of that they don’t even start. So I just want to take the fear away and help them enjoy the joy of deploying for the first time. Also in follow up articles, I’m going to explain how to secure the server.

Then you should specify this, with emphasis, at the beginning of this article. Too many people do a quick Google search & think they are sysadmins.

Even after 15 years as a dev & a couple years learning these basics, I would not attempt to set up a publicly accessible server myself yet.

People need to be responsible.

I have emphasized on this, if you read the article, and mention that it’s just for beginners. I respect your concern here and encourage you, being an expert, to write an article about how to secure such a server. It will be great learning for beginners coming to this article and guess what, I will also link your article in my post. 😊
Remember, the goal here is to inspire beginners.

It's cool to write articles for beginners, of course.

But instead of promoting your DigitalOcean referral link, you should have them use a virtual machine on their local computer. Where they can learn & experiment in safety.

Damn, I don't know miss, how I offended you but I'm just trying to make you understand that we are on the same side. Anger makes you blind. Btw
