Turn old Android Phones into Dedicated Servers

Here’s how to turn an Android Phone into a dedicated server:

1. Get old Android phone from drawer/ebay/landfill
2. Download “Ultimate Servers” app
3. End of story

Too easy! Why did I even make a video on it. lol.

Note: I’m no server “expert”. Just a guy who found an app that is probably useful to some and bringing more awareness of its existence.

    So only people who have access to my router locally can access my website hosted on my webserver that is installed on my Android phone ?
    That will be a rubbish webserver and website.
    We need a website and webserver that the whole world can access. Wan. Not Lan.

    There is a great alternative called Masstream. It basically turn any device into a network attached storage (NAS), you can then access your medias/files with a via any browsers in a local network! There is a network scanner for any other masstream device installed and there is no extensive configuration needed! check this out:

    your local ip address (192.168.1.xxx, etc.) aren't dangerous to show, because, if i remember correctly that can only identify your phone inside the local network

    it doesn't work outside local network
    ISPs block them
    you can use it within your local wifi, but not over internet
