Things have been shit on the temporary servers we had to move to due to the lack of donations.
Sybil LTD ( http://sybil.li?ref=endchan ) has come to our rescue and offered us bigger VPS for free.

We've decided to simplify things and consolidate. We just finished this migration today, we had been working on it for a couple weeks now. We are now hosted in the EU on 4 core, 2.1ghz, 4gb of ram, 500gb SSD VPS

We now have a simpler config:
- no encrypted drives which means no need to wait for an admin to type in passwords for things to start automatically
- should have less power problems than our previous temporary servers
- no more frontend/backend servers, we now have one server and one server alone. This means:
- no more 5th of the month, bill isn't paid west frontend goes down
- no more Communication with Backend has gone down

We have removed i2p and eu access. We traded the EU VPS for this bigger one to run the entire site. Additionally, we're going to start forcing HTTPS. Also we're moving to block open proxies and botnets from posting.

We'll be upgrading LynxChan next.

>We are now hosted in the EU
What does this mean for free speech on endchan? I'll know the answer as soon as we know which country in the EU.

Holland. It's one of the few countries in the EU with a constitutionally enshrined right to freedom of speech. (Like fuck were we going to move to some repressive police state like Germany.) About the only shitty thing I found doing a few quick Internet searches is the local copyright mafia getting ISPs to block The Pirate Bay. This gives us a level of insulation from spurious DMCA requests sent to fuck with us while avoiding the horrible bullshit that EU countries are infamous for.

The Dutch Criminal Code § 137(c) criminalizes:
… deliberately giv[ing] public expression to views insulting to a group of persons on account of their race, religion, or conviction or sexual preference.

The EU is now trying to force new regulations on ALL social media and file hosting platforms to censor freedom of expression / speech under the guise of "copyright protection" too. See here: https://archive.fo/5j5uI & https://archive.fo/nUeBM

Soon no EU service will be safe, and the ones that are will be banned from being viewed/used from European ISPs.

Good thing we're not Dutch, then.

See section 137c. We won't be arrested if not in the Netherlands but the server may be seized, put out of commission and whosoever owns it will be penalized.

Could you elaborate why on both?

odilitime Board volunteer 06/19/2018 (Tue) 21:59:44 [Preview] No.9340 del
because the eu frontend got upgraded and turned into the main endchan server as well as we got rid of the frontend/backend mess.

i2p was removed because I don't think it ever worked right nor did we have the support or tools to test it correctly.

How much does hosting cost now?

odilitime Board volunteer 07/05/2018 (Thu) 23:27:52 [Preview] No.9446 del
It's close to free. We are going to basically give all the donations (after registrar, ssl (yes we pay for non-letsencrypt .xyz cert) and other costs) to the hosting company and they give us what we need.
