Switching from Free Hosting to VPS or Shared Hosting and Project Problem…

For a couple months, I really stuck with some problem in my head. I dive to server administration about half a year for now. It’s great (I’ve 2 Server, linux and windows on local computer inside VMWare), but the problem is when I want to host it to the cloud, I only have option to use my free hosting option.. I thinking about add on domain, which means I will have unlimited website and unlimited resources with just one single billing for it (Hostinger does a good job on it, and I appriciate that), but the problem lies inside it. I learn a lot about server administration and I think VPS will be better for it, having many resource especially when I need an blast mail service, it will work well if I use VPS, because the shared hosting limit email send about 100 mail/hours which if I use VPS, I don’t have that limitation, with my dedicated ip and dedicated things (also cheap arround 100k with web panel a month).  But in the other hand, It’s just too killer for me to pay such a service. For now my wage still small to cover it, even with that amount of money, I could buy 3 good meals for myself for a day. Maybe seems very cheap for you, but for me, it’s expensive.

I think about this because I need a server that always ready wherever I’m, for now like I’m working on school project, which need client-server app. It’s too hard too work on same place on the same time with my team, because there’re all busy, that’s why I think it’s better if I host it so they could try the API anytime-anywhere they want as far as they have internet. That’s the real answer for it. Also for other condition, I really think it’s good for my hobby and I know there’s no such a free beer always in this life. Like my blog, it sits on Access Industry LP, with it’s generousity give me a free hosting for my blog to be hosted and my deploy server is hosted on the same server same IP for free. The main problem comes when the server overloaded. My code won’t run and my deploy server become very slow. It’s very annoying. Really.. In the past day, hostinger give a free beer, but now it’s not. Also with the relaunch of the free 000webhost.com, it’s there but not 24 hours on, 23 hours a day only, with 1 hours sleeps for it. It’s a trade for free services, acceptable but not for me, it’s quite bad to be honest… I don’t know but It makes me irritated (I tried the 000webhost and point it to test.benyamin.xyz, I feels nothing good from it). Yeah I think there’s a trade for such free services…

Back to my problem, I still thinking about it… Which one is good.. Because with VPS I have more power and more option to work on.. Like maybe installing nodejs, or just maybe python or other like java, oracle, and such.. With shared hosting, means it’s only, PHP, Mysql, Apache, and so on.. It’s limited.. But secure and still unlimited disk space is really good… For now I just work on PHP and MySQL. I never have such problem with it… But I still want to learn much things from that kind of thing… I hope this problem have a solution anyway..

In the end also my project is quite stuck. I’m working on some project that I my self still don’t know what’s the aim for. In the other hand, some of my school project make me stress and I can’t think what I should start to fix it anyway.. It’s just fucking as hell… I trust God for this issue, I know HE will give me the right time… Thanks for read such bad post this month.
