How viable is to host dynamic website on a free web hosting?

Of course i know you can't host there a big website, i'm not that dumb, but i mean small one or middle sized one.

I've made a simple textboard in PHP and i'm hosting it at one of these.


You can't upload files there, so i won't run out of limited storage space very soon, but i'm afraid that i will run out of limited bandwidth soon.

What are my options?


Different web hosts have different policies. There are a number of imageboards that are ran on web hosts. Hostmetro, DreamHost, etc.

Most also let you upgrade your plan, so as your website grows, your network can also.

Obviously you want to choose a webhost that offers PHP, which it seems your does. If you ever decide you want more control over webspace, you can opt to get a Virtual Private Server (VPS) which will share resources with other sites, but tends to allocate a minimum amount of them for you alone. Most VPS providers offer linux installations, so if you prefer a windows server, your choices will be much slimmer.


Dude, don't you have an old pc laying around? You can host a simple server for cheap. That's what I'm doing, and it doesn't cost much (around 0.60€ per month). As for the domain name, you can use freedns (google it).

Check out muh specs, the server's shit, but it runs fine:


This is pretty much correct, OP. While a free web host isn't really the best idea, you can use it for a startup. Once you get a decent amount of users, or need to upgrade, I'd buy a VPS.

VPSdime is good, and I use Beastnode for my stuff. Even though Beastnode is mainly a minecraft thing, they have pretty good VPS' at decent prices. Their support is pretty good, and they're pretty much good with anything so long as you don't get reported.

If you need a free domain, freedns is pretty good. If you need to buy an actual domain, don't use 1&1, they're god awful. Namecheap is pretty good though, it's what I've used for my site.


is the software available anywhere online?
i'd like to fork.


Most free hostings are shit. I used to host my chan on Hostinger, data often took 3-10 minutes to load.
I suggest you find a cheap one which's servers aren't shit and don't have strict policies or do like >>667 and use an old computer.
Use freenom for domains. .tk, .ga and others for free for a year.

And VMware still can't keep aspect ratio when upscaling, so I thought I should try it under VirtualBox.
And once I had 98SE all nice and tweaked just like I wanted, I thought "why the hell not?"
So what's your excuse for still being sane on the eve of 2016?

This is VM related so ill put it here.



It's OpenSuse, but congratulations! That linux desktop looks a lot more manageable than the windows one you are running it in.

Now you get to see how easy linux is to use and can shitposts with the elitists that make it sound like some secret club of gang signs and code talk. The downside is, once you're in linux club, there's no leaving linux club.

I'm doing this soley for the themeing and the memeing.

Id never use linux for my daily driver, I actually have shit I need to do.


openSUSE is great. Especially Tumbleweed.
Look at that finalchantm desktop!

Disregard, the title says boombox. Is it vintage? Looks sorta antique, but I see no branding on it. How much was it and do you have dimensions ?


I see you spreading your legs and showing that junk in the knobs reflection.



Looks like Creative T40s or T50s stuck in a wooden box… Nice


ah, I can see that now. If there was a way to incorporate an mp3 player into the box that would be a pretty sweet rig, that way it's both custom cased and an entirely portable soundsystem.


RE: Yes, they're creative labs t40 series II shoved into a wooden box, it's my work boombox. I do have an MP3 player in it - it's behind the door which you can see in the centre. The dimensions are 10" wide, 6" deep and 13 9/16 tall, not counting the handle or the knob.

Why do other distros not use delta packages? Fedora does this when upgrading, and you can see instead of downloading 120 mb I download 15mb.

Is it not worth the trouble?


Every package manager does, they just doesn't announce it.


Pacman uses pkg.xz files and I've downloaded a GB of updates, but only had to download like 300MB.

I'm looking for a tablet that is good value for money, and that I could use for PDF reading, IRC and some other purposes. Do you have any recommendations? So far I've found pic related: the Nexus 7.


That's pretty much your best bet for a well priced tablet that also has the power to do anything. A lot of the other tablets that are cheaper only do one thing well and aren't designed for multitasking.

If you get a Nexus 7, make sure you get the 2013 model and not the older one. If you have money to blow, you can get the Nexus 9 for about 400 USD.


The Nexus 7 is a great choice, there's really nothing better under that price. Most of what you'll find are shitty budget tablets that come from some crappy company like Visual Land, have no support, and just be shitty and buggy as fuck.

Tl;dr: Don't ever buy a tablet that's under like 300 USD unless you know it's good.


My 2012 Nexus 7 is still going strong, even with the screen cracked. Get one, they're pretty durable devices.

open source and freeware is best

how have you adapted to the end of the pay to use era?


Lately I've actually been having a lot of fun using FOSS/FLOSS stuff. There's this kind of community feeling about it, that has kind of died off throughout the years.

>Windows 7 SP1 extended support ends 2020






Last I read, M$ will end support for Windows 7 in 2020.


Oh christ, you faggots are here.

I may have to reconsider my choice in imageboards.

Itt: post your guitars, and guitar accessories.

I'm currently trying to find a name for mine (Epiphone Les Paul 1960 V3)
Current front runners are "Kayla," "Amber," and "Rebecca," who was the first girl that wronged me.

Torrential suggested Chisa, but shes not bright and bubbly like a Strat.

Whats your guitar named?

They're actually coated steel strings. They didn't sound great when I first put them on, but they've gotten better. Plus the coating tends to come off so I wouldn't recommend them for a main guitar, but they look cool which Is all I wanted them to do.

Guitar name has been decided: Eliana

I cleaned the shit out of the neck with a microfiber and water, and realized i was taking the oil out. So I bit of Linseed oil and oiled it, and while I was there I taped off the neck and used some #000 followed by #0000 steel wool on the frets (protip tape off the pickups because the steel will stick to the magnets), buffing with a microfiber.
Goddamn are the frets smooth now. Bends feel like a dream.
Highly recommended. Only took a few hours

What kind of effects do you use? I play mostly classic rock, so I was looking for a cheap Tube Screamer clone, and got this Digitech Bad Monkey overdrive. Sounds good with my stuff. Its the only one I use.

Besides that I have the shitty first pedal I got when i went into the guitar store and said "Whats the cheapest distortion you have?" Its literally called the Planet Metal. Its hilariously bad.

My amp is some $30 Peavey keyboard/voice that somehow sounds great when overdriven a little.

Hey /t/, what are you listening through?

Pics are my Grado ps500s and my fiio e10k

The Grados aret sweet, as a headphone with its price in the name should be, the highs are super crisp, and the bass is clear and deep without being rumbly. though i enjoy them the best when the have some kind of bass boost. They're also low impedance enough that they can be driven very well straight from my phone.
I'm not a super audiophile that can tell the difference between different cables or whatever, but they make me smile all the time.
Plus they make my old beat solos (lel) sound like I'm listening to hold music through a telephone.

I use Google music player, because on my phone it let's me download my whole playlist of thumbs up songs onto my sd card, so I don't use data. I also really like the bass and 3d effects in the equalizer setting, they make for a really enjoyable listening experience if I'm not trying to critically listen (straining to hear every detail in a quiet environment etc).

On my pc I use muh foobar2000 for muh flacs cause that's what the haxxors use. If I'm just causally listening then I'll use Google music because its mini player supports the media keys on my laptop. Only problem with it is that it has a tendency to skip halfway through songs reeee.

How do you listen to your music/porn/games?
