service updates

We start offering hosting options for people and organizations who don’t want to setup their own VPS, based on Hetzner with following locations: Germany and Finland. Right now, 3 plans available - small ( $15 ), medium ( $18 ) and big ( $23 ), all plans include following features:

  • VPS itself
  • Maintenance
  • Email services for domain
  • Provider-level firewall (rules are the same as on-server firewall + strict IP whitelist for ssh)
  • Daily backups (7 days retention)

We still don’t want to be some kind of SaaS provider, so even now we offer hosting that’s still considered as your own server, the only difference is you pay for VPS not to AWS or other cloud provider directly, but through us. So, you have root access to your server and control how it works inside.

If you have any questions - ask them in #discussion:etke.cc room

New order system on website is up and running (our website is heavily cached, so in case you don’t see new order form with different options try to clear cache in your browser)

call to action (organizations)

As you saw on website, we added Case Studies section some time ago and the first organization who published their story is Reidel Law Firm. We want to add more cases to that section to help more organizations choose Matrix for internal communications (and, I hope, external, too).

So if you use Matrix in your organization as messenger or platform for your product or in any other way - please, send me PM, etke.cc service will be honored to publish your story

servers update in progress

this update contains various configuration changes to decrease the load created by bridges with rarely needed things. If you don’t like any of the following changes, just send me a PM and it will be reverted for your server

new versions:

  • Mjolnir 0.1.18 -> 0.1.19
  • Hydrogen 0.2.5 -> 0.2.7
  • Coturn 4.5.2-r3 -> 4.5.2-r4

  • Prometheus 2.29.1 -> 2.29.2
  • Synapse 1.41.0 -> 1.41.1 security fix

Turnkey subscription plan

  • enabled external firewall

WireGuard

  • added full IPv6 support, now it works in dual-stack mode
  • regenerated devices’ configs (keys didn’t change, so you can work with old config or copy new configs to enable ipv6)

Telegram

it’s the most resource-heavy bridge because people tend to bridge large chats, so with the following changes your server’s life will be easier and require less CPU/RAM/disk

  • enabled sync of direct chats on startup
  • disabled delivery receipts
  • (only for new rooms) set initial sync size of telegram users in the bridged room to 10, other members will be synced when they send a message to that room
  • (only for new rooms) disabled sync of members of bridged telegram channels (you can’t send any message to telegram channel, only read it, so no need to waste resources on puppets for readers)
  • (only for new rooms) explicitly set room name and avatar on creation

LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook, Discord, GroupME, Skype, Slack, Steam, Twitter

  • disabled bridge presence
