    Interesting to learn some from your experience of having and planning respectively for cloud storage. It is something I have been thinking I may do myself one day, eg with Nextcloud. But also web site hosting myself is also something I may test in the future. Two additional aspects that I am thinking about:
    1) Security. The Nextcloud or website, should be accessible from outside world – when it comes to website indeed also many other than myself. But everything else on my network, on same external IP, must absolutely not be accessed by other. I’m a litte bit afraid that I would really set it up correctly, and also any security holes that can appear. Any thoughts?
    2) Backup. If I host my own cloud, I also have to figure out a backup. It can of course be external HDD/SDD etc that I have myself. But an advantage with an external cloud is that it is at another site.
