[Noisebridge-discuss] decent and cheaper web hosts

I use a tektonic.net virtual debian machine with root for $15/mo.  Doesn't
look like they have the "unmetered" plans anymore so be careful with network
usage (if you get slashdotted you could have quite a bill unless you put in
your own rate limits)

Having your own virtual machine, BTW, also means you can host as many
domains on it as you want, not just the one.

Best Regards.
