The server I rented to host this site on was taken down by the organization that I rented it from. See previous post. I paid around 30USD worth of monero for that server for 90 days and without any notice, I am not able to access any of the services that I bought from them. I am not going to name them because I want to be sure that there is not an issue on their side too. I emailed for a refund or if it’s possible to get the server back up and running. They have not replied yet.

What should I do now?

When I looked at the support options, they also have an irc-chat where I might be able to get some help. We’ll see how it goes. Hopefully I get a reply.

I should be more careful

The reasons I chose this VPS over the other options, are:

  • Price
    • It’s super cheap for their budget option
  • Availability
    • They have servers in a lot of different regions

The region I chose was Singapore since it has fast response time to many countries.

With my experience using other VPS, I was absolutely fine with any sort of regular web hosting activities like jitsi, nextcloud and simple static site servers. But this one, I don’t know what’s going on with them… Currently the backup VPS is from BUYVM their prices are as low as $2.00 monthly. Not sponsored. I just thought that I might go with them for this site even though they don’t have as many locations as the other service. The website is kinda slow now, takes around a quarter of a second to load a page whereas the problematic service is pretty much instantanious since it was hosting from Singapore.

If it’s a static site, why not just host it on git?

Sure it works but, that’s just not fun for me…

What’s the worse that could happen?

The domain gets banned.

If that happens, I’ll buy a .crypto domain and host the site on there. Those are expensive. I’ll have to mine for months. But even if I still get to keep the domain, I might still shoot for the .crypto domain in order to be adamant from restrictions.
