Free Virtual Server Hosting for Amateur Developers
« on: August 13, 2012, 11:46:24 AM »
Indigo Developer Hosting

I see a lot of great apps on this forum, but the main problem is that they use things like 4shared, 000webhost and other cheapo hosting services. These are, from experience, terrible and prone to a lot of downtime.

For that reason, I'm setting up a server dedicated to developers hosting their apps, on my infrastructure.

If you need to host your website, a Cydia Repo, or just a beta key that voids every weekend, then this is a perfect solution.

The Features include:

  • Unlimited Bandwidth
  • Flexible disk quota
  • (Almost) Always Online
  • SSH and SFTP
  • Your own Domain*
  • Protected with Cloudflare - Optional

To apply for hosting, please PM or email me with how you are going to use it. A basic knowledge of FTP is required, for more advanced features, knowledge of SSH is required.


FAQ


What do I need to apply?
Just show me your apps. Give me a brief outline of what you contribute to the iOS community and If I approve, then you are good to go and I will set up your hosting.


Can I access the shell?
Yes, If you would like shell access, just log into the server with an SSH client using your username and password.

How fast is the uplink on the server?
12MBps theoretically, but realistically usually around 2-3 MBps.

Can I use my own domain?
Of course, contact me with the domain and I will link it up server-side. Just add the IP of the server to your sites DNS entry to complete access.


I want hosting, but I want it for my Hobby/Fan Club Site
No.

How you are setting free server to host applications and websites by the way? Actually I have seen number of IT companies which charge good money if we ask them to host a website or a app.

He simply has his own server and adds sub-domains to those who qualify for it ;)
Oh yes. Hi.
I see you've noticed this Signature. Well, all I can tell you is that there's nothing to see here.
Yes, there is nothing interesting here. Just keep scrolling and we'll pretend nothing happened.
