Welcome to our new and improved blog.
Mhm, we're back, and better than before!
We've been working hard behind the scenes to bring you our new API.
With RLAPI version 3, we've rolled our own authentication system, our own file handling system, and even.. file encryption!
We're excited to announce that we're planning on re-releasing our services to the general public during late Q4 of 2019, or early Q1 of 2020!
I'd like to take a moment to point out a major question that many of our users have had, though.
And that is.. How are we making money?
In the harsh reality of it, we're currently losing money, but honestly, this is a fun side-project for me, and I don't really care.
Although, to keep RATELIMITED afloat, I'll answer that question with an another question. How will we make money?
Our current plan is to run advertisements alongside images, and possibly a few advertisements in the Discord/Slack embeds. These ads will be non-intrusive, and we have a few plans on how we'll achieve that.
We are also going to be allowing users to have their own domains on our services, completely white-labeled off of our brand if they chose so, and with their own file and namespaces for a fee.
To close this article off, I'll leak a few things that we're working on behind the scenes.
- A new website design (Dark themed, of course)
- A user dashboard (holy sh*t, we're finally doing it!)
- (possibly) Load balancing against multiple servers for high availability (aka: we're hoping to be able to have multiple servers always available so you can use us even if a server goes down)
This has been George, signing off.
