Hosting

When choosing a Hosting Type for etke.cc , our order form provides you with 2 choices:

  • Hosting (VPS server provided by us)
  • On-Premises (Your Own Server)

The Hosting service means that we’ll be hosting the server for you. This is a fully-managed service with the least amount of hassle for you.

Our hosted servers are powered by Hetzner Cloud , are available in various sizes and across multiple regions .

If you’d like more choice (with regard to server sizes, regional availability, etc.), you can always get an On-Premises server and handle the infrastructure yourself.

Server Sizes

We provide a few different server sizes for hosted servers:

  • Small: (2 vCPUs, 2 GB of RAM and 40 GB of disk space). Not powerful enough to run addon services.
  • Medium: (3 vCPUs, 4 GB of RAM and 80 GB of disk space). A good choice for small deployments.
  • Big: (4 vCPUs, 8 GB of RAM and 160 GB of disk space)
  • Huge: (8 vCPUs, 16 GB of RAM and 240 GB of disk space)
  • Monster: (16 vCPUs, 32 GB of RAM and 360 GB of disk space)

You can start with any server size and upgrade to a larger instance later on.

Access

When you order a Hosted server from us, we’ll be renting a server from Hetzner Cloud and managing it on your behalf.

Despite this, if you’d like, you can get full root SSH access and are free to run other services on your server yourself.

For increased security, we default to restricting SSH port (22) connectivity to a a list of known IP addresses/networks. If you request SSH access, we’ll ask you for:

  • your public SSH key (of type ed25519 or rsa)
  • a comma-separated list of IP addresses from which you will access

If you do not have a static IP address and are okay with the security risks, we may allow connectivity to port 22 from anywhere.

It’s important to note that:

  • you modifying Matrix configuration manually on the server is prohibited because:

    • it often causes breakage and increases our support burden
    • will typically be rolled-back by our automation (scheduler bot )
  • you running other services along our stack is OK, but:

    • may cause breakage
    • may break at any time in the future due to service upgrades performed by us
    • comes without any support from us

CPU architecture

We only support the amd64 (x86_64) CPU architecture right now, because it’s what most services are packaged & tested for.

The ARM CPU architecture is currently not supported.
