I would like to help you but I'm not a chinese expert. So place ask in english here. This gives you a better chance of a helpful answer.
@twissell you never asked the topic as question, but you can do so to an already posted topic by pressing the settings gear next to your topic title (next to reply button) and click ask as question.
Then click the tree dots button on a reply (@PitaJ ‘s in this case) and click select as answer.
@scottalanmiller Except as you point out... DMCA abuse and.. coupled w/rather draconian TOS verbiage... makes me skeer'd to go with them. I wonder what DO's terms w.r.t. forums are? Somebody should research that.
DMCA abuse happens with any hosting in the US, and the Sega situation was on AWS I believe. TOS is meaningless here as what they "require" is already guaranteed under US law. So if you host in the US, that TOS is just informing you of the law, not draconian whatsoever. They are actually better, in that they are being honest and up front and not making you discover US law on your own.
@gotwf I don’t really care about vultr, I’ve never really used it. I didn’t read their tos and whatnot because I was just reading this I googled how to set up nodebb forum and that came up
We have one of the busiest NodeBB platforms, hitting 191m hits a month, and we just moved to Vultr from Linode. I doubt AWS will hold a candle to it, AWS costs a premium for their extra features but I think for NodeBB hosting the raw power and simplicity of Vultr will prove a better platform and more cost effective. Vultr is absolutely what I'd recommend if you are going to host NodeBB with any real scale.
I'm not against it ^^.
Just want to research a bit before giving AWS more money. :d
So, we need to try:
- implement something like
- check out
UPD. Found an interesting thing - maybe we can use
changeStreamto implement the pubsub ?
What's your overall goal? I have a feeling that you are giving AWS way more money than you should already. If the goal is to go big without wasting money, this isn't the approach. Unless you are doing something in the billion hits a month range, I don't think that this approach can be cost effective at all.
So if you want to give AWS money just for fun, then you might as well give more. If you want to be cost effective, then setting yourself up for scaling will require more scale than will ever be practically needed.
Is there such a thing ???
Free hosting will never really happen. I mean obviously some person who wants to donate hosting "could" do so, but it makes no financial sense. Hosting a site like a forum takes a lot of resources and no business is going to want to give away those expensive resources just to give you free hosting.
Of course, under the right conditions, someone will give you the hosting, but they will do so because they are getting something in return. It might not be direct money, but something. It costs money for a site to be hosted. If you aren't the one paying for it, someone else is on your behalf.
Because there are also other asshats that would abuse DMCA - if only because they can.
Sega of America did that last week to the SteamDB guys. Files a completely false DMCA request and then refused to respond when SteamDB told them that their request wasn't valid. Sega provided no proof or evidence, and just threatened all of the hosts until SteamDB was extorted to take down information on Sega's distribution numbers under a claim that they were distributing software. Total constitutional violation and clearly stepping into RICO violation territory, but the DMCA makes you pretty much immune to any prosecution.
@honeybear this should help you.
PS: If you use Theme Persona. You have Settings under ACP -> Plugins -> Theme Persona
