Mhm, did the maths: My infrastructure costs me ~27.04€ per month.
If one would like to optimize it a bit more for cost and maybe drop GitLab, they can easily go with ~20€ per month.
In the current day and age, probably 20 very well invested Euros. Providing me with more freedom, easier access and more privacy than the average web user.
