Email 2 Server & email 2 site
Inspired by Email2Fav, this idea is that I should email a web server company a specially formatted email and get a complete server listening on a domain
Send an email to the email@example.com and then a domain is purchased and a server is set up for you and the server is running with all your things on it.
Send an email with wordpress mydomain.com to firstname.lastname@example.org and then you have wordpress on your site
You could even
put a marker in the email and say what should be on each page.

halfbakery Universal API functionality
[pocmloc, Feb 27 2023]
||I'm not sure whether I understand this idea. Maybe you could flesh it out? Or does the idea consist entirely of recommending two business services?
||I think its a kind of universal interface whereby you can control anything by sending email messages to a control gateway?
||Some of the old email list management software could be adapted to do that pretty easily. The well known functions triggered by commands in email are, of course, subscribe and unsubscribe; but you could easily trigger just about any function with arguments parsed out of the email body. I guess the hardest part would be to include secure payment details in the email given that email is pretty a insecure protocol.
