Potential Move to AWS

Previous Entry Add to Memories Tell a Friend Next Entry
I'm reading through the AWS Acceptable Use Policy. I don't think anything there precludes hosting InsaneJournal there. I feel that our existing Terms of Service falls in line with this. I'd love to have an open discussion about this, so please comment with concerns. Please keep all conversations civil.

    • Seeing a similar site being hosted by the same is good to see and does alleviate a lot of content concerns but that does bring up the discrepancy in cost for features between ij and dw, with ij being significantly lower for more. I would be hesitant as a user to say I agree with a move either way without knowing how that would look for paid time/features on ij and the free options too. Is that going to stay the same or will we be more in line with dw where their free option is very limited compared to ours and even paid time has less features when looking at the pricing/feature structure for paid versus paid premium and the lack of options to purchase permanent accounts.
      • So I deleted my comment because it was wrong. I looked at the wrong address. I can't tell exactly where Dreamwidth is, so maybe they didn't go to amazon as I expected.
    • Just a heads up! This information is for dreamwidth.COM which isn't an active site. Here is the information for dreamwidth.org https://www.whois.com/whois/dreamwidth.org
      • You're absolutely right. My mistake. They could still be on amazon. But with cloudflare in front of them I can't tell.
    • Apologies, but that info is for dreamwidth.com not dreamwidth.org. Here are some whois lookups for dreamwidth.org:

      https://whois.icann.org/en/lookup?name=dreamwidth.org
      https://www.whois.com/whois/dreamwidth.org

      Both sites report that .org is hosted on cloudflare, not amazon.
