Have you ever wanted to show somebody a service that's running on your localhost? Have you ever set up Dynamic DNS in your router or local machine? Have you ever been setting up port-forwarding settings in your router? Have you ever pasted two lines of sh code to achieve your goals without having to do any of these?

Pagekite makes local websites or SSH servers publicly accessible in mere seconds, and works with any computer and any internet connection.

These are all my kites, I use pagekite to be able to share my development with others and to share stuff in general, this means I don't necessarily have to send an email or upload the file to some locker service to share it.
