How This Site is Built

This site is generated by

The site is hosted on

an inexpensive pay-as-you-go bare-bones reputable web host. I end up paying ~$9 a year for domain registration and ~50¢ a month for storage and bandwidth. I’ve been happy with them so far.

A mirror of the site is available via Github Pages. The source of the site is available as a Github Repo.

If I were starting over today, I would host the site via Github Pages. The hosting is free, and if you are happy with a url like http://dsanson.github.io that’s that. They also support custom domains, though you need to purchase the domain name from someone else. That is actually a bit of a hassle. The cheapest registrars offer .com addresses for ~$10/year (sometimes half that for the first year). But many registrars (like GoDaddy) are sleazy: watch out for hidden privacy fees, first-year only discounts, and policies that make it hard to switch to another registrar. At best, switching to Github Pages would save me $5 to $6 a year.

But I wouldn’t have to worry about additional storage and bandwidth fees.
