Installing Flask on a live Linux (Ubuntu) server:
# you need a paypal or a credit card
sign up for a domain name. use google e.g., netregistry / crazydomains, about $15 per year
sign up for cheapest web hosting plan. i use binary lane $4 per month
write down IP address and root password
point domain (nameserver) to IP address
point registered domain name to nameservers
change ubuntu (linux) root password. if you dont like the browser container window use PuTTY
update and upgrade your server OS
install Apache2 HTTP server
use Certbot to enable TLS on HTTP (aka HTTPS)
use SSH for file transfer. i like FileZilla
sudo update-alternatives --set python /usr/bin/python3.6 if you dont want 2.x
(pip) install flask
use WSGI to forward requests to flask
