    299299Despite that domain fronting seems not to work, we might be able to get the same effect from the URL structure of the secure.footprint.net domain. For example, there is a Free Weibo mirror at https://secure.footprint.net/pingfan/fw. It appears we can get a path under the secure.footprint.net domain. secure.footprint.net is currently [https://en.greatfire.org/https/secure.footprint.net DNS poisoned] by GFW. [https://secure.footprint.net/pingfan/fw doesn't work (HTTP 403) as of 2015-08-28.]

     301=== Netlify ===
     302
     303[https://www.netlify.com/ Netlify] is a CDN and static-content host. Domain fronting appears to be supported with no configuration necessary. It would not be possible to run Tor on the Netlify infrastructure and a potential "meek-netlify" would require a backend to talk to. From the basic plan ($9/month) and up, API proxying is supported. There does not appear to be any bandwidth-based billing, only a fixed monthly cost. SSL on Netlify is a free service with certificates provisioned by Lets Encrypt.

     305A proof-of-concept has been built, but has not been load tested:
     306
     307{{{
     308curl https://netlify.com/meek/ -H 'Host: iain.learmonth.me'
     309I’m just a happy little web server.
     310}}}
     311
     312The configuration is rather simple, in a file named "_redirects":
     313
     314{{{
     315/* https://meek-server.backend/:splat 200
     316}}}
     317
     318That's it!
