[REBOL] Re: Web Site Hosting Services
From: bo:rebol at: 2-Nov-2000 8:52
Here is some info I gleaned from the mailing list a while back:
REBOL-friendly CGI hosting provider: http://www.happysite.net/
I have found the kind of service you want in two different places. The
first is a free public access ISP called NYX. NYX is a non-profit which
provide internet and UNIX access free of charge. They are supported by
donations, so if you feel guilty, you can make a periodic donation. They
provide complete UNIX shell access and you can write CGI scripts and C
programs to your hearts content. They do provide some web hosting
services, but it is not the kind of place you want to use for a commercial
site. It is however, a great place to experiement with scripts and
programs etc. The web address is: http://www.nyx.net
The second kind of place is a full service web hosting company. These
companies typically don't provide dialup service, so you have to telnet or
ftp in from another service. The one I am using is called Interactive
Online. They provide everything you need including your own CGI directory,
annonymous FTP directory and access to the log files. They also have a
complete library of CGI scripts and of course you can write your own.
The web address is: http://www.interactiveonline.net .
PortONE.com offers such services (as well as just about everything else).
They host REBOL/CGI for me. Email to [kreiss--portone--com] if you'd like to
discuss it more.
My host is very CGI and developer friendly, inexpensive and responsive.
The machines are located near Chicago Nap, MAE East and MAE West.
You could contact them directly, or I could help get you set up as a
reseller. It runs about $35/month, unlimited traffic, et cetera.
I also think we could run REBOL scripts from some of the free servers,
like Tripod. Anyone tried this yet? I just need to write a quick script
to test what platform my test account is on (wxxi_org.tripod.com).
For the least cost, sometimes a dial-up ISP will give you some free Web
space, complete with a CGI-BIN. (For REBOL, all you need is an
executable directory and FTP, and you're in business.) You could then
use a forwarding service like NameSecure.com (about $35/year ) to keep
your top-level domain in use.
Of course, if anybody knows of any other REBOL hosting providers (especially
free ones), please send the info to [bo--rebol--com].
