๐Ÿ’ป What's behind?

This instance is hosted on a VM at Hetzner Cloud, in Germany.

You can see the status page to check our uptime.

Since we have users from all around the world (From Brasil to Japan, including Wester Europe), we use Cloudflare as a CDN among other things.

FYI, 30 days of the web server's logs are kept. Daily backups are made.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป The admin

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 run an english blog and a french blog if you're interested.

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. ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿ’ฐ Donations

You can donate to help me maintain this instance in the long term.

Here is what I have to pay:
โ€ข Domain name: 35โ‚ฌ/year
โ€ข Main Server: 20โ‚ฌ/month
โ€ข Object storage: 5โ‚ฌ/month
โ€ข Backup storage: 10โ‚ฌ/month

I invested a lot of time for this, hundreds of hours of installing, tweaking, debugging, optimizing, monitoring, explaining, etc. I love it, 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 ๐Ÿ˜Š

Donation methods:

โ€ข Patreon
โ€ข Ko-fi
โ€ข Buy me a coffee
โ€ข Liberapay
โ€ข Paypal
โ€ข Cryptocurrencies ๐Ÿค

If you can't help financially, don't worry! Just talk about Mastodon around you, help the new users, and toot every day!

You can also just say thanks.

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

Never gonna say good toot
Never gonna tell a toot
