So, what do you get?

What is a Personal Server?

Your personal server runs free software including Ubuntu (GNU/Linux), Apache, MySQL and PHP. Servers come with 20GB storage and 4GB/day bandwidth.

By default your personal server includes:

  • yourname.personalserver.com domain name (or use your own)
  • DNS hosting for your domain
  • Your very own customizable and secure HTTPS website
  • An iptables firewall
  • Fail2ban intrusion detection software
  • A public WordPress blog
  • A public MediaWiki wiki
  • A private MediaWiki wiki (for your private notes)
  • A Postfix SMTP email server (configured to support encryption)
  • A Courier IMAP email server (also configured to support encryption)
  • Roundcube webmail software
  • A public Subversion repository (for files you're sharing)
  • A private Subversion repository (for managing your private files)

But there are additional options:

  • A Windows (SMB) file server (requires an SSH tunnel)
  • A community MediaWiki wiki (for providing access to your friends)
  • Mailman mailing list software (so you can run a newsletter or forum for your friends, or a family mailing list is always popular, your mother will love it!)
  • Public and/or community and/or private Plogger photo galleries (to share your photos)
  • Git version control repositories
