Friendly greetings! 🌎🌍

Radium, a MetalVPS dedicated server in Germany 🇩🇪, was reinstalled last night with Debian 12.

Do you want anything from a small KVM NAT VPS up to the entire server? Or something in between?

Best wishes! 🌎🌍

Tom

Warnings!

  • Forever Clueless™ administrator @Not_Oles has no "technical background" and only "limited technical skills. . . ." 😀 @Not_Oles frequently messes up! 😱

  • MetalVPS has no billing panel and no server control panel. There are no preinstalled VPSes or containers. It's traditional, command line terminal via ssh until @Not_Oles or you install whatever you want. 🆕 You can get a juicy KVM NAT VPS into which you can ssh and install whatever Open Source software you want. If you get a VPS, maybe you also can get a traditional shell account on Radium. :star:

  • Sometimes trusted MetalVPSians might or might not get sudo on Radium, or KVM group membership, etc. 🙈🙉🙊

  • MetalVPS has no onboarding and no knowledge base. ♒︎

  • Account delivery might take awhile! 😴

  • Not for business use! Intended especially for computer learning and fun! 🤑

  • Occasional maintenance reboots are guaranteed! 🌺 VPSes in this offer can be set to restart automatically following reboot. :)

  • Please make your own redundant, offsite backups! It's easy to download or sync or clone your backup to a safe place. Please also check to make sure that you actually can restore from your backups! 🤦‍♂️

  • Please think of your MetalVPS account as ephemeral! Our server might blow up! 💥 At any random second @Not_Oles or maybe you might reinstall the Node! 😸 Or you or @Not_Oles might decide to cancel. 👹

  • Other MetalVPSians probably will see your name, your location, your account name, the processes you are running, and much other information. So, please do not put confidential information on the server. 🤔
