If you own the website then Google Analytics is the way to go. If you don't own the website then it'll be a lot trickier. You can use something like Alexa ranks to track traffic generically, but that won't tell you anything about specific traffic. Or if you'd rather track the traffic you are sending to that page from your link I'd suggest linking to the ...

Have you looked at Highrise from the guys at 37Signals? All of their products have a free version that (as long as you don't want too many contacts etc) works pretty well. There is SugarCRM - an Open Source CRM Also Tiger CRM - another Open Source CRM With both of the above you would need to host it yourself. I think that if you have as many contacts as ...

The only sure fire way is moderation. Now whether that's pre-moderation of all posts by a few people (or just one) or post-moderation by the other users of the site will depend on the amount of traffic. For a low volume site, pre-moderation is OK, but if you've got a lot then there's no way you can keep on top of it all. Post-moderation allows you to take ...

That's strange, I recently added S3 to my account but didn't get all the other stuff lumped in. AWS stuff is pay-as-you-go, so just having them activated in your account doesn't mean you're going to pay for them. You can also remove 'activated' services from your account on that same page, if you just don't want them activated.

Depends what you will need it for . For example in my case, I worked on an engineering team that used a lot of old documents and scrap design paper that were either scanned badly or the text was of very low quality. Many old engineering documents are not searchable even as pdf from research sites. It was a strain on the eyes to read 100 page documents to ...

My company does a lot of work in the area of API integrations and small business automation, and I've been on the search for something similar. I've got four more services to add to the list. The first three allow you to create and host a database online, and they also make it reasonably easy to create webforms and online reports that hook up to the DBs. ...

While conXt currently does not support all of your requirements, much of what you are describing here is where we want to get to. I wanted to contribute to the conversation here in the hopes that more people will give conXt a try and offer useful feedback. It's free, with no ads, so hopefully feedback is a small price to ask! Edit: I'm the founder!

Your browser requests DNS resolution from your ISP or whoever, and it gives the browser an IP address. The browser then connects to the website using the IP address. The website has no knowledge of how the browser obtained the IP address. Also, after your computer sees a DNS entry, it caches it for awhile.

A primary candidate is SourceForge. Update: As at01 points out, SourceForge doesn’t have an integrated wiki. I believe it used to have Wikispaces integrated but that was apparently removed in July 2009. To further answer the question, this comparison table might help, although it needs verifying, because it is wrong in respect of the SourceForge wiki ...

Have you looked into Google Apps? Its calendar sharing features seem to match your requirements. It is syncable with Outlook, accessible from smartphones (either via syncing or a web GUI), and certainly has a calendar GUI. Taking notes from meetings could be done via Google+, or a Google Doc attached to the meeting invitation.

Google Reader doesn't have an official API at present. Various sources have suggested that one is/was intended, but seven years on there is still nothing. Currently everyone is using the 'unofficial' API - a reverse engineering of the various AJAX calls the Google Reader web app makes. As with the recent sudden disappearance of the unofficial Google ...

You have the famous SourceForge as already stated by Mike. You also have Codeplex, hosted by Microsoft (no restrictions on languages or tools though). You have java.net for Java world only (don't know in which language your project will be written).

Maybe you could try OpenStreetMap. As the name implies, it's open and you are allowed to do much more with the data and maps than some other map providers. I've never done anything with it like you are trying, but it might be worth a look.

This has ...
