It was suggested I post, and pin, a toot with information about what it costs to run this instance.
I like this, I want to be transparent, and I think it's important that the community have trust and confidence in me, and the hosting.
Currently the costs looks like this:
* £112.50 a year for a VPS
* €25.00 a year for the domain name
All media (avatars, etc.) are sotred on the server, we use 20G of 40G so far.
