Today the website has been created. I have registered the domain with nearlyfreespeech.net and they host my website.
I do not expect much traffic. Monthly bill seems like it will be approximately $1.34 with email forwarding... (removing it makes it $0.41) Very cheap!
Of course there is creating the whole website thing that one will have to deal with - which NFS expects you to be ok at. They do not give you a website maker! You have to SFTP to put the index.html page in the public folder and SSH to enable TLS which will spook many people. It kinda spooked me because I've never SSH-ed before. Once one gets over that hurdle it seems like easy sailing. I made the alias of this website and registered the domain name with the same name and it just werks. For me that is.
This website exists as a call from Luke Smith (lukesmith.xyz)(seems he broke his website by accident at time of writing) He advocates for more personal websites because the internet is not meant to have like 5 websites. I used NFS (for everything) instead of the domain registrar that Luke suggested because in their terms of service it states that "... Morally objectionable activities will include, but not be limited to: activities designed to defame, embarrass, harm, abuse, threaten, slander or harass third parties ..." meaning if I call out a member of the media and showcase hypocrisy and it 'embarrasses' them then the registrar Luke Smith suggested could removed as per their terms of service. I do not know if they would but I did not want to risk it...
That being said NFS is a website provider... (no minecraft servers) they do not offer mail services but it seems like one can (from my limited understanding) attach a third party email client-thing to their website. Eh. I do not know what to think of this; so I will probably just use a free third party like cock.li and offer my PGP key. I have no real pressure to establish an independent email thing right now.
RSS feed is to come since remembering this website's existence will likely be hard. I am planning on creating a 'tag' like in WordPress for the RSS feed; this way my 'tech' tag will only have tech and not anime and vice versa... Of course there will be a 'general' tag as well. Pretty sure Luke has made a video detailing it.

>"... Morally objectionable activities will include, but not be limited to: activities designed to defame, embarrass, harm, abuse, threaten, slander or harass third parties ..." The wikipedia page on Epik is hilarious. "Epik is an ICANN-accredited domain registrar and web hosting company known for providing services to websites that host far-right, neo-Nazi, and other extremist content. It was described in 2019 by Vice as "a safehaven for the extreme right" because of its willingness to host far-right websites that have been denied service by other Internet service providers. Epik was founded in 2009 by Rob Monster, and is based in Washington." Maybe I should've used them after all.lol on 2021-02-04,02:49:59 said:

Typo sorry. I cannot connect to this site on I2P in last 2 days.Jake on 2021-04-04,15:16:46 said:
Thank you for the report Morinth, I have fixed this. It is strange, when I placed my iptables rules the website was still accessible through i2p so I had assumed that it still worked. Must have been the rule that kept connections alive, somehow.soy test on 2021-07-01,02:31:58 said:
