What are you missing or what could be improved?
I keep reading articles about how to secure my network properly (https://gofoss.today/secure-domain) and what do all sort of things mean (despite reading like 10 articles on "reverse proxy" I still don't think I quite understand what it is), but they never seem to clearly explain what exactly is being prevented.
Hi! I think your website is wonderful source of suggestions on what software to use for what purpose. In that regard I have absolutely no qualms. Admittedly, I rarely use the individual guides for installation, as I prefer use Docker for everything. Still, it's great to have such consistent and well arranged source at my disposal.
In regard to what I complained about, in all fairness to you, I couldn't find the answers anywere, not just your website. While it is quite clear what I can expect from a photo or password managers, it's not quite as clear what benefit I will gain from using Pi-hole as a DHCP server. That's in short where my trouble stems from - I don't have the network knowledge required to understand how I could benefit from a DHCP server (that's not the the default one on my router).
What is the solution you'd like to see?
- clarify how DuckDNS works & what it does
- clarify how Let's Encrypt works & what it does
- clarify how Pi-Hole works & what it does
- clarify how a Reverse Proxy works & what it does
- clarify how OpenVPN works & what it does
