$7

per month
Hello there

I'm ichi_i (@[email protected]) and I run the Mastodon instance ichii.moe.

I do this as an hobby as I am passionate about hardware, software, and information. Therefore, I do not expect nor ask for donations when it comes to the instance. After all, I genuinely enjoy maintaining it and spending countless hours trying to enhance it.

However, if you would like to support me in the payment of the servers, domain, etc. that power ichii.moe, it would allow me to host the instance on better hardware, translating into a better overall experience. You can see a breakdown of the instance costs at the bottom of this page.

Again, I do not expect donations, but if you do end up supporting this project:


Cost Breakdown
A run-down of what my monthly payments currently look like as of August 2019:
  • $10.00 - DigitalOcean Droplet (1 vCPU, 2GB RAM, 50GB SSD, 2TB transfer)
  • ~$3.00 - AWS S3 Bucket (this one changes depending on usage - cost breakdown available here: be sure to select EU (Ireland))
  • ~$6.00 - Media CDN (cost breakdown available here - will soon move to BunnyCDN to reduce costs)
  • $1.155 - Domain Name ($13.86/year)
  • $2.06 - Email
  • Total: about $22/month

When necessary I will upgrade the instance to better hardware (more RAM/CPU resources). In the near future, I would like to add ElasticSearch to the instance so that searches include the text of toots instead of being limited to hashtags and users. This upgrade would cost $20/month (instead of $10/month) which would bring the total monthly cost to ~$32.00/month (or a bit less once I change CDN provider).


Goals
$7 of $22 per month
