Hey,
Anyone here who could sponsor me a VPS.
It will be used to run my website+blog and mail server
I will be launching more projects if i get a good specs server :)

A link back will be given in the website mentioning the sponsor.

my domain is midhunvarghese.com

Thanks :D

    Depends on what the site/blog is to be used for. If were some open source project or something that benefits a large segment of people, I have some lying around unused. But if it's just your personal blog, I cant see why you cant spare around $6 per year and buy one yourself.

    It does sound like his personal blog and he's just cheaping out in hopes a gullible provider will succumb to his wishes.

  • Sounds like someone that is looking for another free vps...

    Is inflation really at 0.5%? What a conundrum...

    I know that you came to this after comparing my name with the domain name :)

    I'm a student who can't afford to pay for it
    I'm seeking help of providers who waste their resources by keeping it idle :)

    I don't think a link back is good enough.

    What else are you prepared to do? I have a spare VPS I could throw your way for the right 'sacrifice'.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

    Or even less and get shared hosting...how much resources does someone's personal blog really take.

    Exactly.

    If it's webspace, I can donate you a webhosting account on one of my VPSes with an i-mscp control panel. But cant do mail without knowing anything about you.

    Really? I'd imagine a burger in the UAE costs more than the annual cost of a lowend VPS.

  • If you can generate quality tutorials, you can sell them to Digital Ocean for $50/each and then use that money to get free hosting from them. If not, then I don't see a point of you having a blog.

  • Why don't you host your blog on blogger with the custom domain option. You can migrate to wordpress whenever you want. Blogger is 100 % free.

  • Im sure you dont need a VPS for a blog...just get some shared hosting from somewhere.

    I ❤ Laravel

    You can host your blog for free on a free shared hosting space. A lot of them allow you to bring in your own domain name. I have used awardspace in past for free.

    if its a website+blog and you need mail, there are many free shared hosting that fits your need. Why would you need a vps but not willing to pay ? http://www.freewebhostingtalk.com/

  • If you need free shared hosting, x10Hosting is the way to go. They're hosting is pretty well structured, barely any downtime, and very responsive.

    I'll sponsor you, i have an extra vps to throw away.

  • MidhunVarghese said: bought this domain for $0.50 which was almost hard for me to pay online

    Are you kidding me? Domain registrar have to pay Verisign over 7$ for a dot com domain, I don't know how you got it for $0.5. Even if its true, unless you are sure of renewing it(which definitely costs more) , there is no point having a domain just for one year (go for dot.tk domains instead).

    If its a blog, you can host it on wordpress.com or other free shared hosting.

    Even in case we want to "Sponsor" a domain, we should trust that you will not abuse the hosting which may lead to blacklist of our email ID. If you can spare Rs. 250 per year, you can try vps at http://lowendspirit.com/ .

  • rds100 said: @MidhunVarghese you are from UAE, right? I thought this was a rich country...

    Sort of.

    The UAE is an incredibly interesting country from a population point of view - Only 15% of the population are Emiratis, the majority of the population originate from South Asia.
    With that in mind, the natives on average have a net worth of a few million dollars, yet some of the taxi drivers I spoke to whilst in Abu Dhabi will be lucky to earn 120 dirhams (~$30) per day. If you're not from the GCC, EU or a rich anglophone country, you're going to have a bad time in the UAE.

    It's been covered fairly well in the news as well

    From what I experienced, there's an enormous gap between the rich and the poor, and therefore It's not too surprising that OP is having problems paying for a VPS.

    Need to reach me quickly? Ping me on Discord

  • Get three free gear (512MB each) from http://openshift.com and host your blog with full control. You can point your domain too.

    Then ask your dad if you can borrow 3 euros/year until you get a job.

    http://lowendspirit.com/locations.html

    Or use free shared hosting

    Got any talents like GFX/voiceovers/accents?

    You could do some work on fiverr.com and get $5 then buy a VPS
