    I'm here to harass to local populace with a question! Is stuff like bandwidth reset after a certain length of time or do you have to pay to reset it? I did look around whilst waiting for my hosting account to be setup but didn't see any threads on it.

    Thank you in advance, because I'll probably forget I made this thread until I come back to the forum.

    Welcome! Just as a side note, you shouldn’t have any trouble with bandwidth, 100Gigs is quite a lot.

    Am I able to have web hosting and a VPS? Just wondering because I have some discord bots I would like to host if that's allowed.

    I looked at the TOS but didn't see anything regarding discord bots, unless I really am blind.

    I have a VPS for this very reason to use a self hosted version of Nadekobot for my server, who I have under the identity of JasjaBot:
    2018-12-18_0-34-24.PNG

    I love Jasja.

    Though it all depends on what sorts of bots they are. I can run Nadeko perfectly fine as long as I disable all the NSFW stuff and music streaming elements (that I can't get working at all). It all comes down to what it is, and what it does. For automation on my server, everything works fine and there's no issue with ports but not all things may work on the free VPS option.

    Also I think Bryan wouldn't be happy if I was just using a VPS for this alone if I wasn't hosting my site here. But as I do he's perfectly happy with it. As long as it's legal and isn't abusing the VPS, you're pretty much all good.

    I have 2 bots I want to run, one of them grabs images and stats from external sources and the other is a normal moderation bot.

    Also, is it allowed if we have stores on our websites? I was thinking of making a small store where you can pay £3(ish) for my bots and it's a one off payment until next year where you'll have to pay £3 again.

    If you're not selling anything illegal or against the tos such as porn then you're all good there with selling things. As long as you have a completely secure store, there'd be no issue there as just because the hosting is free doesn't mean you can't make profit from your own work. And of course as long as you aren't breaking copyright etc, whether for profit or no profit, again you're all good.

    If you want to get paid hosting just as a little donation because you're profiting, that's a nice gesture though again, you have no requirement to do that, just spreading the word about InstaFree, although that's not even required, is all Bryan could hope for from clients, as well as obviously that clients are respectful and don't abuse the service which you wouldn't be doing :)

    Nadekobot, the only things I have disabled is all the gaming/nsfw/music features. Things like grabbing random images and gifs from the web and linking in Discord chat, and fun things like custom reactions as shown in my last message with Jasja saying all sorts of things replying back to what I post... As long as nothing illegal or NSFW goes on, aren't draining resources such as with gaming servers (hence why they're banned) and that you play your part in protecting the server by keeping links to things protected through Cloudflare and such to reduce risk of ddos attacks... you're all good.

    I applied for the VPS hosting but I can't find my application anywhere. And doesn't show up in my posts.

    Sorry for the delay. I've been really under the weather this past week. Combine that with Christmas shopping...not a good combination. :)

    It doesn't show up, because that section is removed for existing clients, to unclutter the forum. Will get you setup in just a few minutes.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. Get well soon. I've been having migraines myself. Really horrible.

    I wasn't wanting anything to be rushed, was just a bit confused as to where it was sent to. But thank you!

    Christmas shopping is 100% terrifying this close to christmas too so I don't blame you for it lol.

    I was also wanting to look at it because I forgot what OS I picked and couldn't remember if you had windows server listed on there or ubuntu.

    Edit:
    I'd like to have it run one of the OS's above if that's not a issue! If you have no effort or is just a pain to change then I'll stick with whatever OS I picked!

    Sorry :3

    Doh! It's Debian 9 right now, but it's really easy to change. We don't have Windows, due to the licensing costs. It costs a ton of money to license on a VPS server. Would you like me to change it to Ubuntu?

    If you'd like @Tatsumi I can PM you instructions on how to do it yourself in case you need it.
