Free Web Hosting?
« on: June 07, 2014, 02:40:48 am »
 Hi,
I have a website and I use free hosting for the website. As it is free hosting I found my website down 5-6 time in a day. I dont have enough money to use paid hosting. So, is it possible to use another free hosting in addition to the existing hosting so that they work as back up for each other? I dont have enough knowledge about web hosting.

If you do that you'd need something in front of the websites. That's called a reverse proxy and you'll need some actual server.

You get what you pay for, unfortunately. Most free hosting providers offer bad uptime or speeds just to convince people to upgrade to a paid plan. The only reliable free hosts I ever found were community hosts like Sorunome.de but then only old members usually can get hosting privileges and it's not guaranteed the host will exist forever (I lost my United-TI webspace twice before).

That's enough to call him a community host. Alberthrocks is also one with Withg.org. So if you hang around here and on our IRC you'll surely find a member with a server who will gladly give you some space on their server for free.

Otherwise I heard of 000webhost being not bad.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

I'm not fond of 000 personally. A while ago ClrHome was often down or very slow. It was  since fixed again, but for how long?

000webhost has bandwith limits for free websites hosting on them. But apart from that, it has a pretty decent uptime, so it is very suitable for websites that don't get a lot of visitors.
If you want a relyable server with good bandwith and uptime, you pretty much have to know someone who hosts a server and lets you use a part of his, or pay to rent a decent webserver. Alternatively, you could set up your own server at home. All you need is an old computer and internet.
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

I tried 000 and it sucked. I found hostinger to work a lot better.
