From April 2021, the Reserve Bank of India has issued that there will be no automatic recurring payment for various services including recharge and utility bills. This comes in the light of how some brands and companies take advantage of such an unchecked system due to which customers have to incur unnecessary charges, sometimes without refunds.
Renewals have always been tricky, not just for the common man, but also for businesses. With so many business functions and software that run on them, keeping a tab can be difficult. Among all this chaos, ensuring your hosting and deployment is up-to-date is crucial as it forms the backbone of your ecosystem.
ArGo takes care of this backbone of your product with Permanent Deployment. It allows you to deploy any frontend app to the Arweave. Arweave gives you the power to deploy full web apps permanently.
“If everything published on the web could be stored permanently, in its original form, the information would be immutable, transparent, and accessible to everyone.”
Why should one go with Permanent Deployment?
Major hosting providers are known for performing malicious acts concerning controlling the fate of businesses that use their ecosystem to host their app ideas. That’s what happens when one single entity or person takes the shots in a centralized ecosystem.
If your application pages or whole app concept doesn’t meet the guidelines of your hosting provider, there are huge chances that you might face the removal of support. This leads to ‘404 page not found errors’ and sometimes, even stealth edits that you as a developer and organization might not be even aware of.
“As a collectively owned hard drive that never forgets, Arweave allows us to remember and preserve apps and version records indefinitely. ArGo in turn allows you to deploy your apps to Arweave to avail benefits of permanent deployment”
The ecosystem right now is more like a walled-off garden of the web, with complete control in the hands of hosting providers and not businesses. But this doesn’t need to be the case with the rise of blockchain and permaweb.
You have no choice but to pay
The major centralized hosting providers are presently dictating the market pricing. If one is not taking care of the usage and active in finding leaks within the app, there are huge chances of recurring fees that will leave you wondering where it all went wrong.
App optimization, in collaboration with the support of the hosting provider, became crucial as lots of startups and MSMEs started to incur unnecessary fees. This support for such optimizations is also something that you need to pay for to the service provider.
The ecosystem is complex enough for the layman not to understand, while small, inexperienced teams can find it difficult to execute and tread difficulties doing it on their own. This can deter a business growth that generally faces a cash crunch in its early days.
As the business grows, hosting costs also increase exponentially. Such app hosting costs can easily take up the major chunk of your overall business costs without you realizing it. At the growth stage of a business, one has no choice but to pay to keep ones’ customers happy and exist on the internet.
