👨💻 The instance
This Mastodon instance is hosted by @james on dedicated servers in Amsterdam 🇳🇱
We run a fork of Mastodon called bottle, which has several customisations specifically for ABDL.link.
We follow good security practices and have great uptime. We have twice daily backups, and use a CDN to store and deliver media assets. We also have a nice little status page.
This instance uses Mutant Standard emoji, which are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. Also ABDL emoji created by @BabyTyler.
Currently our operating costs are about $350 a month (dedicated servers, bulk email, media storage and CDN).
You can support us by becoming a monthly patron.
