I do have one very small comment:

The website unhosted.org uses HTTPS with Server Name Indentification (SNI).

Seems I found out links and lynx don't support SNI.

Anyway the default certificate for clients that don't use SNI is
www.3pp.io and it's certicate has expired.

Might be important or not, I don't know.

Hi!

3pp.io being expired is not such a big issue, since it's only a holding page, and we are renaming the "Third Party People" project to "Indie Hosters" anyway.

It had never occurred to me to test the website with lynx, although I do think that Explorer on windows XP also doesn't support it. See also http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5154596/is-ssl-sni-actually-used-and-supported-in-browsers for a discussion.

However, if your browser supports unhosted web apps (for which you need JavaScript and CORS), then it probably also supports SNI. :)

The alternative of either hosting it on http, or paying an extra 2 euros a month for an additional IPv4 address, is also not so attractive.

Thanks for the headsup, though!



Cheers,
Michiel
