Above statistics are specific to this server.
koyu.space Mastodon is hosted on masto.host, they use an OVH infrastructure in France for their hosting. This is the site you're currently seeing. Our Git server is hosted on OVH, but by myself. Everything else is hosted on DigitalOcean. We use Cloudflare for DNS management and partially their services like enforced SSL and DDoS protection. We may see your IP address or webpage views, but we REALLY take our job serious in protecting this data.
Server uptime: https://up.koyu.space
To keep server costs low we host things on a "What will happen in the future?" basis. So if we see a user influx we have to pay more. Since our services are free and don't use any tracking or advertisement mechanisms we greatly appreciate donations if you like. I'm currently paying the servers off my student loan which isn't much.
Services with closed registrations are request-only due to limited resources.
We also offer free subdomains for users on koyu.space! Just e-mail us your A record or CNAME record along with your preffered subdomain and we will handle the rest. Please note that we don't take any responsibility for user subdomains except limited by law.
