Everything should work the same, only the new server is a lot faster.
I set up the old server in 2013. It was a t1.micro instance on AWS, which is no longer supported by Amazon. The new server is a t3.nano, which is cheaper yet faster. Ah, technology!
Please let me know if you have any problems with the new site.
EDIT: One thing that is different with the t3.nano is that it has slightly less RAM than the t1.micro instance. I also run a MySQL server on this box and I may need to play with some settings. So if you see an "out of memory" message this is what has happened.
Why use such a small server? It's a good way to test how well Rockets runs given hardware constraints. In the future I might upgrade to something beefier. It's also a way to show off the power of Rockets! For example, this page rendered in 6 milliseconds. That's pretty impressive!
