Static websites, cheap hosting
I’ve figured out a way to cut my hosting costs with Github Pages, Form Spree and Feedburner.
So now, if you would like to subscribe to Brandt Lab updates, you can use the RSS link down the lower right of this page, or subscribe by email.
For many years now I’ve been sitting on extra hosting, just in case the perfect job comes along and I can stun a potential client with a quick webpage and make lots of money. Okay, so maybe make some money. But my technical abilities far outstrip my ability to present myself as a serious web mechanic. And there are so many free options out there.
So now, I can still make a quick website if the ideal client arose - hey, I still have many months left on my old hosting anyway - but when the old hosting expires I will be fielding only domain renewals and a tiddly little $24/year hosting fee from Zuver.
I’m feeling better already.
But there is a fair bit of work left to move everything over, but I’m learning all the time.
