Hosting Drupal sites? You need Aegir!

Do you need a self-hosted solution for hosting and managing Drupal sites? Would you like be able able to upgrade all of your sites at once with a single button click? Are you tired of dealing with all of the proprietary Drupal hosting providers that won't let you customize your set-up? Wouldn't it be nice if all of your sites could automatically get free HTTPS certificates?

If you said yes to any of the above questions, there's only one option: http://www.aegirproject.org/. While it's possible to find a company that will host Drupal sites for you (https://colan.consulting/blog/drupal-specific-hosting-choose-provider-those-offering-comprehensive-platforms ), Aegir helps you maintain control whether you want to use your own infrastructure or manage your own software-as-a-service (SaaS) product (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_as_a_service). Plus, you get all the benefits of open source. (https://opensource.com/article/17/8/enterprise-open-source-advantages)
