    Oh man, you do not know what you’re getting into…There’s a reason why WordPress.com limits themes and plugins, because the number of problems and headaches random combinations of them might cause is exponential.

    Hell, I’m hosting three blogs and I’ve already got enough headaches just from trying to limit my resource use.

    And that’s without even taking into account exploits and buggy code. This is going to be a fulltime job for you and the problem is that I don’t know if ads can cover your costs.

    Truth is, I had a similar idea in the past but I decided that hosting for everyone is just too risky. As such I offered some help instead as a community service, but few took me on it.

    Well, best of luck in any case.

    @db0: Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I know that there’s real work ahead of me, I’m ready for that. If performance and resource utilization really become an issue there and the tips and whatnot that you link to don’t help, I’ll split the service off to a different hosting provider that offers some kind of grid-based VPS. Additionally, I can forsee generating a “banned plugins and themes” list, since I know that there is plenty of bugginess out there that just never gets fixed. We’ll see, ultimately, how this works out. Thanks for the heads-up!

    Very cool! I will have to seriously consider this.

    Agree with db0. I have 9 years experience in the hosting business. An agorist’s time is a horrible thing to waste!

    George, I seem to have an excess of time at the moment, and a shortage of funds. If I can manage this successfully, then I create residual income for myself. It’s also a platform for liberty agitation, and an opportunity for me personally to extend my own network of, um, comrades in the agorist cause.

    I understand. If you’re willing to put in the time and effort and all it can pay well.

    Another objection, it’s not a distributed solution so if there is a problem it could take a lot of voices off the air.
