Krydos Posted May 10 Share Posted May 10 We've made some great progress towards buying our new server. At this rate we'll probably have it purchased and set up before the end of the year. The last 25% is the toughest part of any fundraiser though. To the 63 people who have donated so far, we send out a huge thank you for supporting our cause to provide free or low cost hosting to those in need. We really appreciate you. To the 2035 active accounts who haven't donated yet, we have a question for you. What can we do to improve HelioHost that would make you consider donating too? We have hundreds of ideas and projects that we're working on, but we need your help prioritizing what should be done first. HelioHost is far from perfect, and small annoyances or lack of features are probably stopping some people from donating. Obviously we're still in the process of completely overhauling HelioHost so most of our services are pretty bare bones, and you need admin assistance for a lot of things still, but we've made a lot of progress over the last year. What should we do next to make HelioHost even better? Should we make adding domains without admin help the highest priority? Should being able to edit your own DNS records be the most important thing? Should we put more effort into making Tommy faster? Should we make Java available again on free hosting? Should we allow more free signups per day? Should we update our documentation to make complex tasks like Node.js and Discord bots easier to figure out? Should we make more YouTube videos? Should we make Ruby on Rails available on free hosting? Should we provide memory usage and CPU usage graphs in the dashboard? Should we make it so users can enable remote PostgreSQL access themselves? Should we implement password resets through our website rather than having an admin send you a link? Should we put more effort into accepting donation from more than just PayPal? Should we look into accepting cryptocurrency for VPS payments automatically instead of an admin having to verify it? Should we allow users to install Python modules themselves through the dashboard? Those are just some of the major ideas we're already working on. Is there anything else you can think of? We're going to have an amazing new powerful server soon, and we can use it to help make some of your visions come true. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
