@007 I use Hetznerz server auction service. We've got about 16gb of memory, 3.8 GHz CPU and it's all hosted on a physical server in Germany. Also like 3tb disc space. This is about 22 pounds a month but they do cheaper servers.

@goat all that for £22/month???? is there a catch?

instance admin question 

@007 it's very barebones. You gotta do everything yourself. Plus, the way it works is they have a list of servers that are old or not in use. You pay on the specs you want but you can't customise or improve it or whatever.

@goat barebones is fine by me! i have vague memories of trying to sign up to hertzner and they rejected my account for some reason, not sure why. appreciate the reply!

@007 no worries. If you need a hand hmu!

@goat another quick q: what do you use for email? did you have to setup dkim/sfp/etc?

instance admin question 

@007 I used a Google email for that. I'm too lazy to do my own email stuff

instance admin question

@xenon that looks like good value!

@007 I use a VPS from a friend that has IXP ports, but I uh, kinda run too many services on this 1CPU, 1GiB RAM, 50GiB SSD box. But sadly don't have the money to expand eh
