Web hosting is limited to those I trust giving shell access to. Exceptions ``may`` be made by Jason Fesler, particularly where editors don't need file access. An example of this will be blogs or mediawikis installed by Jason Fesler, and edited by the domain owners.
As a preference, if your domain is being hosted at gigo.com, I prefer to also host your DNS. This allows me to make IP address changes if needed (i.e., if the server has to move on short notice for any reason).
Domain owners should publish their content at
Statistics are available by visiting http://stats.gigo.com and clicking on the appropriate domain name link. Statistics are updated daily.
For people without domains
You can place your files in
~username/public_html/ . This will make your files available as
I recommend getting a domain name for your use. This will permit you to move your web site and your email address, without having to notify all of your contacts. This basically makes your address "portable" on the internet. Otherwise, you will be tied to the services of gigo.com long-term.
Only SFTP is supported.
Server name: gigo.com User name: your unix username on gigo.com Password: your unix password on gigo.com
Our systems are constantly being probed by people hoping to hack your account. To minimize that risk, as well as keep the system load acceptable, gigo.com will automatically block access to people who incorrectly put in usernames or passwords while trying to use ssh or mail.
When this happens, the only thing that will be accessible is regular web access to http://gigo.com ; the mail server and ssh server will both be blocked.
Blocking will last between 15 minutes and several hours, depending on the type of abuse. Attempts to log in with bad usernames tend to be blocked for a while. Attempts to log in as "root" will be blocked for several hours. Repeated password failures on valid accounts, will be blocked for 15+ minutes (with increasing timeouts if the abuse continues).
