  • Alternatively, for people who have more time than money, they could consider using a pay-as-you-go webhost such as NearlyFreeSpeech.NET, which can cost you as little as a penny a year, depending on how much disk space and bandwidth you need.

    One downside is that you'd have to set up all the fancy stuff such as a blog, a wiki, a subversion repository, a domain name, etc. yourself; there's no control panel with one-click installs, no free domain name and no static IP address. (Though you do get a MySQL process

    • Oh good; I'm not the only one who mentioned NFS. :)

      For the record, I've installed almost everything you describe on NFS: a wiki, a subversion repository, domain names, etc. I don't think I ever installed a blog, but I've done webforums. I view no control panel as an advantage. :) NFS expects you to do most administration through ssh, which means they are people who think like me. :)

      I think MySQL is actually no extra cost for only one instance, but I could be wrong, as I know that the pricing changed slightly on this during the last year. It's just that the price change has been so insignificant it hasn't been worth my time to look into it, yet. :)

      • Yes, MySQL used to be free but is now $0.01 for the first process and $0.02 for every additional process. Plus $0.01 if you want InnoDB IIRC.
