Host your own cloud based online IDE

You can host your own Cloud9 online editor on any node based platform. This way it works way cost effective than off the shelf service providers such as C9, Koding, Codeanywhere.com etc.

I just created a 1GB VM with digitalocean.com for $10/month.

git clone https://github.com/c9/core.git c9sdk  
cd c9sdk  
./scripts/install-sdk.sh

You can run the install-sdk.sh script also to update the SDK to the latest version.

Running:

Start Cloud9 in the SDK as follows:  
 ./server.js -p 8080 -l 0.0.0.0 -a :
