This instance is hosted on a VPS at Hetzner, in Germany.
The server has the following specifications:
4 virtual cores of Skylake Intel Xeon 16 GB of RAM 120 GB of Ceph SSD Hosted at Hetzner, in their DC3 Datacenter in Nuremberg, Germany. 1 Gb/s connection, using Hetzner's worldwide network, ensuring low latency. (We have people from Japan!) Debian 9 and Docker Good security practices Good uptime IPv6 compatible, always running the latest stable version of Mastodon 30 days of the web server's logs are kept Daily backups of the database and files, on another server hosted at OVH, in Gravelines, France. I also backup the backups once in a while to a server in my home (France). Its disk is encrypted.
I'm @angristan, the admin, a french tech enthusiast and Linux sysadmin at a French managed web hosting company. I'm a student in a French IT school at the same time.
I made an account dedicated to mstdn.io news: @admin. Thus you don't have to follow my personnal account to get the latest news on the instance.
I'm the only admin here so feel free to toot me if you have any question or concern about the instance!
Also, I'm a heavy user of Mastodon, so you can be sure this instance won't be abandoned because I lost interest. I launched mstdn.io because I love FOSS, dencentralization and free software, so this is one of my hobby. 😁
I'm a weeb, I like free software, tech, gaming and stuff, but I think I'm open minded and I get along with everyone here.
You can donate to help me maintain this instance in the long term.
Here is what I have to pay:☮️
• Domain name: 35€/year
• Main Server: 16€/month
• Database Server: 9€/month
• Backup storage: 10€/month
I invested a lot of time for this, dozens of hours of installing, tweaking, debugging, optimizing, monitoring, explaining, etc. I love it, it's my passion, but I do this on my free time, so any thanks for my work, financial or not, is really appreciated.
I also run a Tor relay, so your money will alway be put to good use 😊
Don't forget to toot me @angristan if you made a donation. 😉
Don't forget to donate to the main dev, he is the one making the hard work for Mastodon: Gargron's Patreon
If you can't help financially, don't worry! Just talk about Mastodon around you, help the new users, and toot every day!
Thank you, and happy tooting!
We're no strangers to tweets
You know the rules, and so do I
The full federation that I'm thinking of
You wouldn't get it from
Any other instance
I'm just gonna tell you how I toot
Gonna make you understand
Never gonna toot you up
Never gonna boost you down
Never gonna tweet around and
Never gonna make you toot
Never gonna say good toot
Never gonna tell a toot
And toot you
