DDNS + Free Hosting = 100% uptime?


#1

Just wanted to know if anyone has ever tried to set up dynamic DNS with free hosting. This way you could theoretically have 5 - 10 free hosts set up with one domain.

You’d have to find a way to sync the databases though.

I just want to know if it’s a project worth persuing but theoretrically you could break all the limits with this:

10GB Per free server x 20 servers = 200GB of bandwidth per month!

Also you could say BYBYE with all those DDos . . . . sorry . . . . server unavailable . . . upgrade now! . . . . messeges

If one server get ddosed just continue using the others :slight_smile:

Never try it… but check cloudflare to your DDOS problems, server unavailable and other problems :wink:

Quick explanation of cloudflare

For me, if I am not expecting too much traffic from my website, I would certainly not attempt DDNS, it’s set up if very much complicated.


#4

Load balancing isn’t very easy to pull off. Your best bet is to use cloudflare if you are concerned about DDoS.


#5

Sigh I can’t delete posts!

CloudFlare won’t help me at all if 000webhost is atacked. Do you understand how cloudflare works?

Client —> CloudFlare —> 000webhost.

So cloud-flare will only prevent direct attacks to my server. If someone ddosess another 000webhost site my site will go down since traffic wont be directed through CloudFlare. That’s why I need load balancing. CloudFlare supports round robin dns and on top of that I have exported certain services like commenting system (Disqus) and login (Google, Facebook , Twitter) so I don’t have to keep information synced on my own databases.

This way I can host my WordPress blog on up to 5 free hosting accounts at the same time. I can keep them synced up with Dropbox and my site will never again go down.

sure
my website of me 90% uptime host free 000webhost domain .tk :frowning:


#8

Yeah +1 for clouflare. I have 5 sites on pro! :slight_smile:


#9

Why do you aspect so much from a free hosting provider?

As a free service, is it not enough?


#10

Yup you are right 000webhost free hosting service provide if you get more features so go to premium membership.


#11

100% uptime with free hosting…? wow…I want to know how to do it…:smiley:


#12

At least they should have the decency to design it better? What?


#13

You don’t aspect much more from free hosting.


#14

does it really work? I would love to know the results.


#15

There is no hosting provider that can deliver 100% uptime. I’d double check everything here first before signing up to anything.


#16

Totally Agree…
But Can u please explain how it will work in brief ?


#17

The offer is really good. I will opt in in few time.


#18

I use Cloudflare for my 000webhost site and in the small amounts maybe 2-3 minutes it sometimes is inaccessible then CloudFlare takes over and has a mirror of my site basically? So is still usable by vistors :slight_smile:


#19

I am a free site member. My website has not worked all day today. I understand, no problemo. However what bugs me is that there is a button on the right navigation menu that clearly say “Free Upgrade”.

I have clicked it on two separate occasions and there is nothing free there. Or at least I have not seen it. Can anyone on this thread direct me to what they mean to say here.
Or maybe this is just a trick.
I always like to know anyway.
Please do not mistake this as a complaint. I am pretty easy going and can deal with the free stuff.
Thank you guys

Never mind! I looked at this again and it says
"Free (Upgrade)"

It’s an Option!

No more 4:20 for me, LOL
