About this site / server

Software

The site is a gemini site, proxied over to HTTP(S) using :

gmnisrv

kineto

Apache

(I could have gone with nginx, but I totally don't get their config files #lol)

Server

The content is hosted at home on a shelf and not in a big data centre somewhere in the cloud. The name of this server is Bertrand.

Why Bertrand ?

Well, le Siège de l’ESA (European Space Agency) se situe à Paris. Le centre administratif se trouve sur le site "Bertrand", situé dans le 15e arrondissement.

Still don't get it

Connection

I have a Fibre connection on Free in Paris, France. Generally it's quite fast, but of course since this is hosted on a single geographic connection, it will vary depending on where on this planet you are.

Also, with anything self-hosted, it is prone to falling offline randomly.

Other things

DNS is hosted by Hurricane Electric (HE) for cd.ax and jw.rs, gemini.is still lives over on CloudFlare (but probably not for long).

Mail is self-hosted using Mailcow and SpamHero.

.ax is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) of the Åland Islands, Finland, introduced in 2006. Previously, most Åland websites were under the .aland.fi subdomain.

.rs

.rs is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Serbia and Kosovo. The domain name registry that operates it is the Serbian National Internet Domain Registry (RNIDS). The letters rs stand for Republika Srbija/Република Србија (Republic of Serbia).
