Hugo is written in the Go programming language and is a static site generator. The entire website is build using static files with meta data at the beginning of the file followed by Markdown syntax for the content allowing rapid development of content with a consistent appearance. Because all of the content is stored within files, there is no use of a database which makes the site more portable and easier to backup.
The site is powered on a SSD backed virtual machine from Digital Ocean. We have been using them for a few years now, they have excellent support, are inexpensive and those SSDs are so very fast. We recommend them if you are in the market for a new provider.
