Read Privilege and websites by Felix PleşoianuFelix Pleşoianu (Felix Rambles)
Let's make one thing clear: if you can afford to have even one internet domain to your name, let alone more, you're incredibly privileged. You have the money to pay for it, your country isn't subject to some embargo, and no government has decided to silence you. Yet. Because you don't own any domain...
Not sure I agree with the entirety of the argument here. Yes there is some privilege at play and there’s the eternal argument over ownership versus renting, but in the long span of history, we’re making some exceptional strides. Compare domain ownership and hosting to the cost of having a phone number and cell phone service. I get far more value out of my self-hosted website.
