Hello, so I’ve been a Glitch user for over a year, and it has been great, it was working. Until… This recent block of ping services.
I am hosting a Discord bot, Fact Of The Day, on Glitch, that requires 24/7 uptime. The uptime was secured using http and uptimerobot.
If I can’t use that to keep it up 24/7, Glitch won’t be an option to me anymore. Not for my current projects, nor future projects.
I am already getting complaints on downtime, and if this continues, I have no choice but to look for a different hosting service.
“Why don’t you spend some money to keep them alive 24/7?”
The paid subscriptions on Glitch are way too overpriced. Especially when you have services like Contabo. The storage and ram isn’t close to being worth it for the price. You can get a VPS for 4 Euros, with 750x more storage and 2x more ram. Including it being a machine specified for you.
If I had a choice between:
10$ a month for a shared server 24/7 uptime, 400 mb storage, and 2 GB ram.
4 Euros a month for a VPS with 24/7 uptime, 300 GB storage, 4 GB ram, 2 cores, and full root access.
I would pick the VPS anytime.
If the free option wont allow me to get the 24/7 uptime that I need, I am not going to choose spending 10$ a month for things that aren’t even worth 1$ when compared to the 4 Euros option.
I am not going to just watch my projects slowly declining in popularity because the host took away my way of getting 24/7 uptime.
I have to look for a different option, a better option, a option that will allow my projects to keep growing the way they do.
It has been a good time, but if my projects can’t stay up 24/7 without paying 10$ a month, the time has sadly come to an end.
