@eloquence I'm using the CX11 for my new diaspora instance and I love it
The thing is Ni-host is using OpenVZ, which is kind of awful in 2018. They're planning LXC/KVM offers, but I don't know when.
Now I can migrate to a real KVM VM, upgrading to Debian 9 at the same time and have more "cloudy" features like snapshots (that could come very handy for major updates).
By the way: I'm still very satisfied with Ni-Host. Just wanted to try something else. :)
@angristan Heh. I have a couple of dedicated servers with Hetzner and have generally been quite happy with them. I noticed that most big Diaspora instances run with them.
Appreciate the detail and thanks for running mstdn.io so transparently - a good example for other instance admins to follow. :)
