How Deta works

The reason it doesn't cost you anything to host this micro-blog on the Internet is because of what the generous folks over at Deta are building, a personal cloud.

They propose the idea of the Personal Cloud as something in between your person computer and cloud servers.

When you create an account on they give you your personal cloud, you can then install apps on your personal cloud just like how you install apps on your phone. The app and it's data will be hosted on your Deta account, not on the servers of the app. It's a new concept.

If you don't care about the tech behind this, here's a to the point version: Deta hosts your website for you for free forever and you can use your custom domain or get a free subdomain.
