Selling on the internet via ssh!

Not_OlesNot_Oles Hosting ProviderContent Writer

Found this on HN, where it has 387 comments, including interesting tips about the use of ssh and a historical note about selling CDs and books over telnet.

I hope everyone gets the servers they want!

    Start self hosting with an external IP with IPv6rs.
    The only thing between your host and your data is trust. Trust is not security.

    Interestingly Stripe started life as /dev/payments and I seem to remember the first iteration was an agent on your server that literally processed card payments when you wrote the details to /dev/payments
