    1. Old Mobile Websites?

      Hey everyone, I'm currently looking for some web 1.0-esque websites, but with the twist of being designed for some ancient smartphones. An example of what I mean would be i.reddit.com , reddit's original (and still fully functional) mobile implementation, or Twitter's site when you access it without a modern version of Javascript (which reverts to a clone of itself from around ~2012). I understand this is a super niche category and there's hardly any of them left, but if you happen to know of any or stumble upon one, please let me know! Thank you! :)

      Hey everyone,

      I noticed accessing Wikipedia today that my old version of the app no longer loaded any pages, so I tried checking with my stock browser and it displayed a warning that Wikipedia is dropping support for anything that can't negotiate TLS 1.2. I haven't seen any articles on it yet online, so just thought I'd holler a mention.

      I will be releasing a beta version of Intergrid in the near future, before New Year.

      The first thing I need is someone to buy a domain name from.

      I'm looking for a reasonable yearly price for the common generic TLDs ($10~$20), combined with reliability of support.

      The only previous experience I had was with GoDaddy, and I had no issues with them. I have, however, heard stories of terrible support service (which I never used, for lack of need), and I'd rather not support a company of that level of service. (Nevermind that I bear strong dislike for post-service spam.)

      The second thing I need is someone to host it.

      Ideally, I would host it on a personal server, which would probably be a Pi-like platform, because I like the idea of owning the host as far as personal projects are concerned. I have little idea of how viable it is, or whether it's a better option for me than renting server space at the moment.

      Lacking that, I'd like to have a EU-based hosting provider with reasonably-cheap ($10~$15) basic-level plans. Since the beta of Intergrid is local-storage-only, having a database hosted or supplied is not an issue at the moment. Low time-to-connect is important.
