Self Hosting Gitea

Awhile back, I made the decision to self-host my code on gitea using a digital ocean droplet. Gitea is a self-hosted, lightweight git service that if you utilize, you can have a lot of the premium features of Github for a fraction of the price. I use Digital Ocean, with their famous $5/month pricing for relatively minimal servers. With the small resource requirements of Gitea, written in Go, the $5/month server is a perfectly adequate solution to get started.
