1️⃣ The Domain
The domain fleschutz.de is registered with Netbeat and this is where the web browser redirects to DropPages.
DropPages is a Dropbox extension, it generates HTML5 web pages from Markdown texts, images and CSS3 layout. Moreover, it compresses the web pages to speed up the transfer speed.
3️⃣ Synchronization & Versioning
The Dropbox service automatically synchronizes all homepage data between cloud, server, PC's, laptop, tablet and smartphones. Any of these devices can be used to edit the homepage. Every change is distributed to all other devices in the shortest possible time. Thus, in the event of a failure, many backups are available. In addition, Dropbox also stores the version history of each file, so accidental changes can be easily undone.
4️⃣ Pictures & Photos

5️⃣ Texts & Translation
All texts are written in Markdown format (see Learn Markdown). Texts are translated into other languages using the DeepL translation service.
