[Not Solved] PSA: don't use .tk and free options for repo hosting

Hey, i've noticed that a lot of people use like .tk domains and 000webhost for hosting their repos and stuff. And while that might work fine (now) it's going to not work later. Freenom (the .tk registrar) deletes inactive domains and so does 000webhost with inactive sites (also they pause them sometimes to force you to get a paid plan). The best way to combat this is to get paid hosting and a domain name from namecheap or something similar and host the repo that way. If you can't, find someone to do it for you (you'll probably find someone). Another way is to upload a .zpp install file to a github repo and allow people to install the module that way via the module manager in your web panel.
