@doxxy I wish! :3
(in case you actually don't know, I mean the "cloud" server we run our mail on and bounce website connections through)
@frost I had to use a VPS to tunnel everything for our server through since we didn't have access to the router at our last place. They can be useful.
@doxxy Yep, that is /exactly/ the reason we got ours! blugh.
Apparently our VPS provider (Chunkhost) is dying and it's surprisingly hard to find a new one. 99% of them have really weird "don't run this or that" and/or """morality""" clauses (ugh) in their TOSes.
Planning on going with Racknerd, they don't seem to have that shit. Anything over their base tier is like $20 a month though.
Huh. I did the popup-talk-with-support-chat thingy, and... apparently they can sell out of VPSes at a given location? Huh? That's weird.
But it sounds like we can talk to support to move datacenters later if a slot opens up.
Also we cannot do monthly billing and then switch to yearly later, unless we talk to support which sounds like a hassle. So yeah guess we're paying $32 instead of $9, and Committing™.
(doing their ryzen plan instead of their cheapest $22 a year plan, because we get 2TB bandwidth, 20GB storage and 1GB RAM that way, it's more equivalent to what we had with chunkhost.)
This server is part of a collection of services that are mostly federated and run by a couple of furries.
