About This Site

Grow Your Own Services aims to encourage people and organisations to create their own internet services by highlighting managed hosting options.

Managed hosting is by far the easiest way to make your own internet services, but it isn’t very well advertised. Hopefully more people will realise they don’t need to be techno-nerds to build their own internet presence.

This site encourages traditional sustainable decentralisation, as used by telephones, email and the world wide web. There are lots of good reasons why this is the best way of doing things.

This site completely opposes so-called “web3″/blockchain/cryptocurrency schemes.

This is a self-funded site, I pay for all this site’s costs myself. I have no connection to any of the providers or sites linked to. There are no affiliate links, no sponsorships etc.
