I’ve been a big fan of https://www.webfaction.com/ since I started using them many years ago. Unfortunately they were bought by GoDaddy in 2016 and now they are migrating all of the accounts to tsoHost starting in November. Shortly after receiving the email about the migration to tsoHost I got another email from them saying my account could not be migrated to tsoHost because of some features I was using:
I’m not surprised by this. I’ve a lot of different things running on WebFaction.
I still like the convenience of having someone else handle the maintenance of web, database, and email servers. Can you all recommend a good shared hosting service that offers SSH access, allows me to build and run my own programs, and has managed web, database, and email servers?
Also, I just saw https://lobste.rs/s/ljikpd/youtube_dl_repository_taken_down_from, bonus points if you can recommend a hosting company in a location that would make censorship harder.
