[chbot] question about web hosting

I have been using the Kiwi Webhosting Company for ages:


At the time their dollar-a-week plan was a great way to have some webspace
and dabble with stuff. They also deal with domain registration.

They haven't really updated the plans for a very long time, but they might
soon, and it's worth calling them to ask what they will add for free,
bearing in mind we are now in the 21st century.

I have run a Python web server on it, a MySQL database with PHP, email, and
ftp. It's handy for occasional experiments.

I have never had any problems with them, but I don't hammer their services
24/7. They're part of the Vocus Group now, about whom I know nothing.
