Launching the "Tiddlyhost Standard Plan"

posted by simon on Monday, April 10, 2023

Of all the items mentioned in the original vision for Tiddlyhost, circa January 2021, the last one to become reality has been the subscription billing idea. I'm pleased to announce that a subscription plan for Tiddlyhost is now available.

This might not invoke a resounding cheer from everyone out there - I like using stuff for free as much as anyone else - but the idea that Tiddlyhost could provide a service good enough that people would choose to pay for it has been something that inspired me to keep working on it over the last couple of years. So I hope that there's a place for a non-free version of Tiddlyhost that provides some enhancements and additional services not available in the free version.

So far, the enhancements included with the new non-free Tiddlyhost are:

Save history

If you need to recover an older version of your site for any reason, the "Save history" feature provides a way to do that. With this feature, you can view, download and restore from up to 100 previous versions of each of your sites. If you delete something accidentally, this provides an easy way to recover it.

To preview the "Save history" feature, click the "Save history" menu item from site actions menu.

Redirecting Tiddlyspot sites to any url

If you claimed a (pre-2021) Tiddlyspot site, this feature allows you to redirect it to any url on the internet. If you have some content that you moved to another location, the redirect will help people find it and refocus search engine results.

To access this redirect feature, click on "Advanced settings" in the Tiddlyspot site settings.

So if you want to read more about the subscription options, please visit the new Pricing page.

I am interested in your feedback, so please do let me know your thoughts. Is the price to low, too high, just right? Would you consider signing up? If not, what might change your mind? Is there a potential feature that you would definitely pay for? Post your ideas in the comments here, or send me an email.

Note that I am planning to keep improving Tiddlyhost for free users and for subscribed users. There will be more improvements coming, so stay tuned.

Thanks very much to those users who have already shown support, either by subscribing already, or by sending donations or sponsorships, or by sharing bug reports and feature ideas, or participating in forum discussions, or posting comments on this blog. I very much appreciate all the support and encouragement received from Tiddlyhost users and the TiddlyWiki community in general. Thank you all!

Well, it costs as much as Twitter Blue, and it's for a much better cause. Sure, there are cheaper hosting services, but they benefit from economies of scale, and leave you largely on your own. I have other places to host a wiki, but it's not the same thing. Good luck with it!

Is there any way for someone who isn't really interested in the paid features to just give a one-time donation? That would be nice to have as an option.
