Moving to a VPS (Vultr)

For a while I’ve been wanting to get my own server to do some stuff other than hosting files, and I finally got around to doing just that.

What you’re reading now is served from a server with 100% free software, running GNU Guix System. Maybe I’ll write about how I configured it another time.

The VPS provider I use is Vultr which I definitely recommend. I use their 5 USD/month plan and it works a lot better than I expected with Guix. The fact that they allow uploading arbitrary ISOs and booting from them is a blessing which allowed me to get this thing working in the first place.

If you want to help me keep this online and you’re interested in getting a server yourself, you can use one of my affiliate links to register. Here are the links and the details for each of them:
