  1. +Chris Hawkes 0:20 "I always recommend…. LENODE" sorry I can't understand the first site that u recommend that was not free… if u can add the link into description, would be could just to check (I know it's not free… or if u want to go with a new video with the "best pay hostings 2017 " it's ok too.

  2. The backside of free compute resources is the amount of criminal activity it attracts and the cost of having to manage that. I'm not going to mention names here but some companies don't bother doing much about it because it doesn't hurt them financially. You don't need much network traffic and compute power to do some real harm. Some don't even restrict mail ports causing a lot of phishing. A lot of people underestimate how much damage this costs our society and how easy it is for criminals to automate their deployment these days. Even if they are taken down after 15 minutes, that is a win for scammers. They got a new IP to spew their garbage from.

  3. Great video. I also used byet.host for like a month now, servers seem fast for free hosting platform. Though you have to visit your site and log into your account once in a while so it doesn't get deleted.

  4. +Chris Hawkes AWS Lambda is cheaper and, probably for most people, easier and better than EC2 (in my opinion)

  5. One thing to note is that some of these hosting options are IAAS(Infastracture as a Service) and some are PAAS(Platform as a service)..depending on your skill level, commitment to setting up and maintaining server configs, and other factors like scaling you may want to consider that as well.
