Server moved to AWS! Yey...

Been a long time coming. I finally moved all the servers (5 domains in total) to AWS infrastructure. At some point I hope to get some trusted certs, but that is for another day. I really like working with AWS, GCP, Azure, Etc. Always learning new things that are available.
