Hey guys,

 

I've made a few nifty programs over the past few months and I want to know of a few good places to publish them so they can be used.

 

Thanks!

Have you though about creating your own little web site? That way you can decide how and what to promote.

Just curious; what kind of programs?

Have you thought about codplex? http://www.codeplex.com/

I have thought of making a website, but I don't want to purchase the rights to a domain name (I'm still in high school). Plus my web design skills are lacking. I have set up a web server using my IP though. 

 

I've made little utility programs in Java mainly -- Wake on LAN, LAN messenger, a program that downloads all of the screenshots for GTA V, lol and a few more. I'm starting to learn C as well.

 

I have not heard of CodePlex. I'l check it out!

Since you are home hosting you may want to look into dynamic dns.  The best free one is no longer free but there are still a bunch out there.

http://www.dnsdynamic.org/ is one.  Just search "free dynamic dns" and poke around to see what you like.  They are all easy to set up and deal with - I used dyndns.org(no longer free) for a sh*t ton of years.

 

You won't get the cool .com name or whatever, but you will get a permanent URL that will help when dealing with search engines and getting people to your stuff.

 

Not to mention you will also gain some good web hosting administration skills since you will be running and managing your web server.

U can try to post them on tutorial forums with a nice presentation of the program and a virus total scan link below to be more credible

Github is a good place to keep various misc projects that you might want to share with people. It's both a way to get your code to other people, and a way to organize your projects.

I second this. It's also a great addtion to a resume.
