Typeset in Matthew Butterick’s Equity. Besides being an outstanding typeface (loosely based on Stanley Morison’s Ehrhardt), Equity is sold under the best font license I’ve seen so far—it’s just 1 page and it lets you do pretty much anything you want with the fonts (besides reselling them of course). In a world of stingy, paranoid font licenses this is refreshing and welcome. The display typeface is Pablo Impallari’s Libre Bodoni, based on Morris Fuller Benton’s version of Giambattista Bodoni’s famous typeface.
Built with Jekyll, a static site generator. If you’re proficient with the command line and basic system administration then I highly recommend Jekyll. The benefits of switching from a dynamic engine like WordPress to a static page generator—speed, security, simplicity—cannot be overstated.

Thus far my experience with them has been great. DigitalOcean obviously caters for advanced users—server management is done through the command line—so if that’s not something you’re familiar with then this might not be for you.
