Looking for people to share server with

Filed under
Just talk

The last few months I have been using a server for security research, kernel testing, mod security rules testing, firewalls, dos protection, you name it. As well as to host my ircd and site. We basically have the server for development and testing although it is ran just like any other hosting server. In order to do the research we do we must keep a server. One is directadmin and the other is cpanel which we bought recently to learn the ins and outs of it and perhaps write some useful tutorials and walkthroughs for admins. Plus we figured we could sell hosting on it to balance out our budget.

This has not really worked which I don't guess we marketed hosting that hard and I would really like not to even deal with basic hosting and clients, all that stuff.

What we are looking for is some people to come in on the server with us like a 1/4, 1/3, or 1/2 share. This would be ideal for developers as we will install any module or software you need as long as it doesn't interfere with anything else on the server. Also ideal for bigger sites with irc or whatever. There is teamspeak installed on both boxes and IRC and adult content is allowed.

This is NOT hosting, this is a server co-operative and there is no support tickets and all that. Just me on msn if you ever need anything installed or something is broke, that is far as support goes so if you don't know your way around a linux server then this probably isn't for you. Also no small hosting accounts, just fractional shares of the server.

People with shares on the server can reseller hosting if they like but you are responsible for the people you host.

This is a totally non profit, and all shares will be at cost. Proof of billing can be shown. I would prefer to have only developers and large sites with binary processes then reseller hosting but we are flexible.

So if anyone would be interested in something like this you can message me on msn jon__felosi@hotmail.com Serious inquiries only and again, this is not a server hosting service, it is a non-profit server co-operative.

The specs of the directadmin server is pentium 4 3.2 ghz with ht, 1 gig ram, and 160 gb hd sata. 100mbit connection, 1tb of bandwidth monthly, directadmin control panel, and centos 4.4 OS with grsecurity and all other security software. Contact me on msn for pricing and what is available.

The cpanel server is pentium4 3.2ghz with HT, 1 gb ram, 120gb hd, Cpanel/WHM, CentOS with grsecurity and other security software, it is on a 10mbit dedicated pipe with unmetered bandwidth so around 3300 gb transfer monthl;y. Contact me for availabilty.

People who do want half share will be granted root access as long as you dont do any oddball stuff or mess anything up otherwise I am the one who manages the servers.

Debian, Devuan, and Ubuntu

  • My Free Software Activities in April 2016
    I handled a new LTS sponsor that wanted to see wheezy keep supporting armel and armhf. This was not part of our initial plans (set during last Debconf) and I thus mailed all teams that were impacted if we were to collectively decide that it was OK to support those architectures. While I was hoping to get a clear answer rather quickly, it turns out that we never managed to get an answer to the question from all parties. Instead the discussion drifted on the more general topic of how we handle sponsorship/funding in the LTS project.
  • Initial Planning For Ubuntu 16.10 Today At UOS
    Beyond the announcement that Ubuntu 16.10 won't ship with Mir and Unity 8 by default, many other items were discussed for the Ubuntu 16.10 release due out in October.
  • Ubuntu 16.10 Isn't Going To Use Mir / Unity 8 By Default
    Well, another setback for Unity 8 and Mir. Kicking off the Ubuntu Online Summit for Ubuntu 16.10, it's been confirmed that the Unity 8 desktop and Mir display server will not be the default for the desktop spin. Similar to the current situation with existing Ubuntu releases, Unity 8 and Mir will be available as an opt-in feature for users wanting to upgrade their desktop, but Unity 7 and the faithful X.Org Server is planned to be the default for Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak.
  • Devuan Beta Release
    After two years in development, a beta release of the Devuan distro has made it into the world (Devuan is a registered trademark of the Dyne.org foundation). Devuan is a very Debian-ish distro. In fact, it basically is Debian, with one notable absence. Devuan doesn't use systemd. In fact, that's its main claim to fame. Devuan was created to offer an alternative to Debian fans who were alienated by the controversial switch to systemd.

Leftovers: OSS
