External website hosting ∞
proper hosting ∞
- https://www.engineyard.com/ - For Rails.
- https://www.dreamhost.com/legal/unlimited-policy/ - Doesn't allow: File upload / sharing / archive / backup / mirroring / distribution sites.
- Emailed to clarify. TODO - find the response
Free Hosting ∞
A good place to check is probably http://www.free-webhosts.com/free-mysql-database.php
I looked at these pretty closely.
- Looks wonderful. Doesn't allow domains.
- https://x10hosting.com/ -- requires one to regularly log into their forum.
- They can just deny with no reason and no way to communicate. Nice.
crap hosting ∞
Website services ∞
https://baywords.com/ -- WordPress blogging. They temporarily disabled new signups. =( It's been a long while though..
- https://www.noip.com/ - subdomains
- crabdance.com -- free subdomains
https://freedns.afraid.org/ -- Free DNS Hosting, Dynamic DNS Hosting, Static DNS Hosting, subdomain and domain hosting.
- https://www.godaddy.com/ - good for .com
- baremetal.com - good for .ca
- https://www.noip.com/ - good for privacy
https://www.domainsbyproxy.com/default.aspx - I've seen it used for privacy with godaddy stuff.
Dynamic DNS services ∞
Blog hosting ∞
- See also WordPress
https://twitter.com/ - microblogging
- http://twitpic.com/ for pictures
Project hosting ∞
There's also https://fusionforge.org/ if you want to have a SourceForge-like website.
File hosting sites ∞
https://rubygems.org/ - for Ruby gem hosting
See also Peer-to-peer
- A Distributed Anonymous Information Storage and Retrieval System.
https://www.dropbox.com/ -- uses a program. Highly recommended by some places..
Picture hosting sites ∞
allow direct image linking:
- https://bayimg.com/ -- No censorship. From the guys who did the pirate's bay?
- https://www.imagefap.com/ -- They accept porn
good on keeping pictures around:
http://porn.orge.pl/ -- used to be a torrent site, now it hosts images.. =/
Video hosting sites ∞
- www.veoh.com -- They syndicate to multiple hosts! Their internal player is Windows-only.. bah.
- https://www.metacafe.com/ sortof..
webcam chatrooms and video streaming ∞
Audio hosting sites ∞
Public DNS servers ∞
You could just run djbdns -- it's a replacement for BIND.
- See also https://tinydns.org/
- https://www.opendns.com/ -- They have a nasty "feature" that redirects any request to a non-existent domain to themed Yahoo! search results. Apart from that, the service is very good, and I think if you create an account you can turn off that "feature."
http://www.crowdfire.net/ - some kind of pseudo-hosting site?
Link protection ∞
Dspam - Community Driven Antispam Filter
Server software ∞
- thttpd - tiny/turbo/throttling HTTP server
- Renown for its speed.
- As of 2017-12-18 last updated 2005-02-23
- A complete Usenet system. It includes innd, an NNTP server, and nnrpd, a newsreading server.
- Leafnode -- NNTP server for small sites
sn -- News server for small sites
- http://siag.nu/pen/ -- A robust load balancer for tcp and udp based protocols such as dns, http or smtp. It allows several servers to appear as one to the outside and automatically detects servers that are down and distributes clients among the available servers. This gives high availability and scalable performance.
Varnish HTTP Cache
- CloudFlare for caching and uptime and such.
- Search engine optimization
Odd web server software:
- A web server in dd/sh
- PS-HTTPD: The PostScript web server
- awk web server
- Allows you to use SSH, TELNET, VNC, FTP and any other Internet application from behind HTTP(HTTPS) and SOCKS(4/5) proxy servers. This 'proxifier' provides proxy server support to any app.
- Squid / etc
- Squid - caching proxy
- Ad Zapping With Squid
- A redirector for squid. Good for low-resource systems I'm told.
