How you get your own site?
First things first: The rules
- Keep it up to date.
Means if you run a CMS System, keep it up to date. Install the updates and be sure you don't create security issues
- Don't host services I already run
Means Nextcloud/Owncloud, Pydio, Ampache, Imagehosters
- Don't host “heavy load” systems
Groupwares, Filehosters, File management utils, Music or Video shareing sites (even private ones). Those Systems can grow BIG and easily exceed the diskspace the server owns.
- Don't host malicious software
No attacking scripts, no fuzzers, no fakesite generators, no crawlers, no phishing, no phreaking
- If you upload own scripts, keep them compliant to PHP 7
Keeps the errorlogs clean and small
Can I loose my site?
YES! By not sticking to the rules. But there is more:
- I have to stick to laws. If you violate them, I HAVE to hand your site over to the officials.
- If you violate the rules, I will write you once, asking you to fix it. If you don't fix it in time, I will suspend the site With a password. If you still don't respond, I will delete it.
Now: How to get your own site
It's quite simple. Visit the support system and create a new ticket.
