Urbit Ship and Star Hosting and Troubleshooting Docs

See: https://zalberico.com/essay/2020/06/06/urbit-on-the-cloud.html

This proposal is for getting the above docs into the official Urbit install documentation for recommended best practices to host your own Urbit ship on digital ocean. This part should be quick since the documentation above is already written (it's just hosted on my own blog).

Then when that's merged, to use the star from that milestone to similarly document the best practices for hosting a star and common star workflows (escaping, bridge, OTAs). This will include relevant troubleshooting commands that are helpful for someone hosting a star to debug common issues.

All of this will be done with an eye towards maintainability of the docs along with explicit steps that make it easy for users to understand what they're doing (similar in form to the docs on blog linked above). This will also lay the ground work for potential tooling around alerting, debugging, and automation which could be described and scoped more explicitly in a future proposal once the manual processes are documented.
