It's a Mellama! [userpic]
Anybody wanna be web hosting roomies?

Hi hi, friends :D

I figured I would just put this out there in case anybody might be interested.

Basically I have a web hosting account I currently use that... I've barely used even the fraction of the space and bandwidth of, atm, and I wanted to offer to split up the cost of the plan with whomever might be interested? Currently what I know to do is set up individual WordPress accounts per subdomain, and you can access yours easily from your own log-in page. (Yay!)

For the sake of transparency, my current web hosting plan is at around $60 per year. It currently gives me 10GB. I've only used... not even half of a GB (I mostly have portfolio and blog sites, for reference. Although they haven't grown in scale or anything. So.)

So the more there are of us, the cheaper it will cost per year. If I can get one web roomie, it's $30 per year for each. If I had 2 roomies, $20 per year. 3 roomies, $15 per year... and so on. If you're putting up, say a portfolio or any site that isn't going to rely heavily on huge media files that take up a lot of space, we're golden. :D If you're going to be using a custom domain name, we can just figure out how to attach your current one (if you already own one) to my webhost. :D If you don't have one yet, you can buy one from any provider? (I currently use Gandi, just for convenience, but they're a little pricier in terms of domain names, iirc.) If you're okay with having it be a subdomain without a custom domain name (ex. 'yournamehere'.melgcabral.com) then you just pay for the cost of webhosting.

For those who aren't going to be using WordPress, I can still look into whether I can provide FTP access that's password-locked and stuff too. But I'm not 100% sure on that ATM. I haven't really had the time to. :(

So, uhm, yes. If you're interested, please PM me~ or if you know anybody who might be interested too.

(This is brought to you by Mel needing to figure out what to cut from her yearly expenses because thesis has been eating my life and thus haven't had time to do more projects that pay so I am trying to see how to make things win-win for everybody. Whee?)
