Is it safe to host a static website on c9


Hi, I am the owner of Viraldeals I was thinking to host the website on c9. Is it a bad idea?


It is a bad idea. For various reasons:

  • c9 is a development environment, not a production environment
  • c9 servers don’t run 24/7, don’t provide guaranteed uptime or any other SLA in this direction
  • the purpose of a static website is not to depend on a server-side logic, you just need a storage to deliver it

Therefore, use literally anything to host your website. Like GitHub Pages, Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, heck even Dropbox would work.
