Decisions about Laravel Forge

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Laravel Forge in their tech stack.

Hello, I'm currently writing an e-commerce website with Laravel and Laravel Nova (as an admin panel). I want to start deploying the app and created a DigitalOcean account. After some searches about the deployment process, I saw that the setup via DigitalOcean (using Droplets) isn't very easy for beginners. Now I'm not sure how to deploy my app. I am in between Laravel Forge and DigitalOcean (?Apps Platform or Droplets?). I've read that Heroku and Laravel Vapor are a bit expensive. That's why I didn't consider them yet. I'd be happy to read your opinions on that topic!

Heroku is unable to handle payment issues arising due to Indian Reserve Bank's decision to stop recurring card payments. I am using the following Heroku services:

  1. Web Dyno
  2. Worker Dyno (Scheduler)
  3. Cron To Go (Queue)
  4. ClearDB (MySQL)
  5. Heroku Redis (Queue Driver)

I have to migrate my Apache/ PHP/ Laravel/ HTML/ CSS/ jQuery/ MySQL application hosted on Heroku to a new provider. My current options visible are:

  1. AWS Fargate
  2. AWS Beanstalk
  3. Quovery
  4. Microsoft Azure
  5. Laravel Vapor
  6. Laravel Forge

Does anyone have any guidance on which of the above options (or any other option not identified above) is recommended for migrating away from Heroku? and why?
