Why you should have domain name

In the past, I used free hosting options for my pet projects due to financial constraints, but those providers often had strange subdomains that disappeared quickly. I switched to Google App Engine, which was initially free with a .appspot.com subdomain. Nowadays, it’s still free, but you need to provide billing info, and exceeding quotas results in charges. Moving from GAE to a VPS means replacing appspot.com domains, which can be a hassle.

I recommend you to buy domain (preferably .com) from Cloudflare or Namecheap for around $10-11 per year. This way, you can create subdomains for all your projects.

Remember, having your own domain simplifies managing your projects and gives them a professional touch! 🌟
