People are going to be hard-pressed to use this over DO's own heroku-style platform. digitalocean.com/products/app-plat...

DigitalOcean's App Platform is a fully managed service, Dokku is close but not completely unmanaged.

Still an A+ choice though! I'm running a static website, 2 PHP applications and 3 NodeJS applications for 5$/month thanks to Dokku. 🥰

Simply wonderful.

Yeah, true. I've been wanting to give it a try for a long time. Hoping to try it with some .NET apps.

I've done a little bit of research, but keep in mind that I've never used .NET.

While Heroku doesnt have official support for DotNet as seen in this article...

They do offer a non official buildpack.

But you might want to try this community-made buildpack, as it seems to be more popular.

Anyways, good luck! ☺

Just in case you went with App Platform, a dotnet core sample can be found here: github.com/creativefisher/aspnetco...
