View Full Version : UbuntuPlus needs a new host for deb repository

October 10th, 2006, 07:56 PM
Hello, I am the leader of the UbuntuPlus project, which sprang up from this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=136955&highlight=ubuntuplus), and is gone into more detail in this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=183933&highlight=ubuntuplus).

I know, it hasn't been updated in a while, but that's going to change.

Even without updates, the binary Debian repo (.deb packages) is taking too much bandwidth for tikal26 to continue generously hosting it. I was wondering if anyone knew of any other host for debian repos, or could offer help?

Most of the packages are not made by me, but are repackaged by me, such as the transmission bittorrent client, which doesn't have any other publicly available .deb (at least that I know of).

Right now, the total size of the repo is well under 50mb, but it may grow. More important than storage space, is lots of bandwidth.

Any help or suggestions are appriciated. Thanks.

I know a good host but are you willing to pay is the question?

Unfortunately, now I am a poor student. It's doubtful I'd have enough money to pay for the amount of bandwidth.

It's only $71 a year with free instant setup.

40,000 MB Web Space
900 GB Monthly Bandwidth
That has to be enough!
