How is this site hosted?

I’m curious how this site his hosted from a software perspective. I’ve been playing around with the idea of hosting some discourse communities on a spare PC that has become a NAS and all i can seem to find are some fairly confusing and non-standard official docker install instructions one hand, and some bitnami docker images on the other (which im only barely managing to configure properly)

is there a better way to do this?

We’re hosting this instance on Digital Ocean (paid for by Open@RIT) using the pre-configured digital ocean droplet. I believe the droplet is a fairly standard default configured docker container running on a VM.
