Ninthfloor is closing


The shared hosting service NinthFloor is closing at the end of the year:

We have been considering Ninthfloor somewhat in deep maintenance mode, but the reality is that the project is unmantained and it has been for a long time.

Thirteen years is a long time and what Ninthfloor offers was way more useful, interesting and challenging back then: there were no cheap VPSs, no Letsencrypt, GitHub was one(!) year old. As of today there are better and more reliable ways to do basically everything Ninthfloor provides.

I first noticed it in 2012, but never actually signed up in the end.
