Juha, from a Finnish based hosting company dogfight.fi, has contacted us that he is willing to give free hosting for startups in exchange for advertisement or a share of your company (I’m guessing most will go for the advertisement :)). Despite him wishing that startups who apply, are well thought or even already launched, he says that the main point of the giveaway is to allow companies to grow without tech problems.
I asked him about scalabitlity and that shouldn’t be a big problem up to a certain point. The technical setup is a regular LAMP-setup, but he’s also willing to negotiate on ruby, postresql and others.
Not sure if this is interesting to everybody, but for those who are trying to test out their concept – it might be worthwhile a try. If you are interested, contact him through the webform.
