Okay... there have been a few changes... Want to get started? It's easy!
Some cool features:
Hi there. I’m Dasho. This is my humble attempt at a hosting service. A lot of people love to keep asking me questions, so I thought I’d just say everything upfront and save you (and me) the time. You can always reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The rules are very plain and simple.
(If you have to ask, it’s not allowed)
(Same rule applies)
|No Child Sex Abuse Material||No Gore|
|No Guns||No Animal Stuff|
|No Drugs||No Pics of Poop|
Legal adult-only porn content is allowed on sites that aren't specifically made for this content (e.g. social sites, image boards, etc.).
Furry chats/forums are allowed, just keep it decent and non-toxic.
No sexual content involving children (anyone under 18) is allowed.
>> If it breaks the rules above ... it's not allowed <<
They act as standard VPS style servers, more accurately droplets (docker containers). They come with a file manager and a web-based SSH terminal, and work over tor, with clearnet support optional. All droplets of the same Generation share the same kernal, but run in their own secure container. They act the same way as a VPS, just are more efficient and easy to manage.
Yes, they can run WordPress, you just have to
.zip file and extract, and set up. I will not help with this - sorry.
When it says free above - it means free. There are no paid tiers, no hidden prices, no hassle. It’s just free. If you ask me in an email how much it costs - I will flat out ignore you okay. IT’S FREE!!!
It’s not an expensive server. I’m not using professional-grade technology here. It’s run off a home router, on a basic Ubuntu installation on a spare laptop I have at home. I’m 17 years old. I’m in high school and I live at home with my family. It’s very feasible to run.
have had a 2.TB hard drive attached to the PC. The PC itself has 16GB of
RAM and my broadband is pretty good. I have hardened will harden the PC itself so
it will be fairly secure, and the servers are powered by containerisation,
so they run rather efficiently. To prevent multiple MySQL
servers from running at once, you all share one server. You get your
own DB and may request another at any time. There is no limit to the
number of databases you can have (yet).
I only investigate a server if I have a reason to. That is if it is uniquely reported to me. I do not collect any personal details on you at all - and you can ensure this by requesting a server through Sonar, by sending a message as a guest. If a server violates the rules - I simply delete it and that’s that. If you use it to store or share personal information and do not trust me (why would you…), you can always look at encryption options.
I live at home. I go to school. I am not always next to my computer. As a result, the server can often go offline - but it’s usually not too bad and never lasts more than 8 hours. Average uptime without downtime is about two weeks. These are inevitable though. My mom might plug it out by accident or my sister might take it and forget to plug it back in. Shit happens. You get what you paid for. I try my best.
Also. READ THE FUCKEN DOCS .
I didn’t make a whole nice friendly “Hello World” page for no
reason. It explains shit. Including how to get root access. Use
sudo all you want buddy - it won’t do shit. You have to
su to change to the root user (using the default
password when prompted), and then do what you want.
And finally, remember your server codename. I will not touch a single server for you if you can’t tell me your project codename. It just won’t happen - sorry to burst your bubble. You must remember it.
This is required for all G2 Droplets and above.
A newer feature…
If you own a server and you’re afraid that your server codename might become public or be guessed, you can set up 2-Factor-Authentication. To do this, just ask, and I will send you a barcode to scan into your 2FA app. There is no verification that it’ll work, trust me it will. If you lose your 2FA access, you can create a file called verify.txt on your server in the
/root directory with a random 12 varchar string, and then
send me that string to verify your ownership also.
This is why it is important to keep your private URL … well,
I will also highlight that you can use GPG key-based 2FA also. This might
be useful if you want to verify ownership using 2FA without having to be
chatting with me in real-time.
Also - people seem to think I’m here to help then unconditionally. That’s not my job. These servers are bare root servers. I gave you a nice file-manager, and a simple SSH platform, and good documentation, but it is for people who know what they’re doing. Use the internet if you get stuck. I promise you that Google or Stackoverflow know a lot more about this shit than me.
I am such a nice person, that I will help you if you ask, but please use me as a last resort. Okay?
