First of all - thank you for visiting my blog and reading my posts. Midnight12.com seems to be running without big hickups and visitors are finding their way to the site, either by SE, feeders or with this blog. The system contains 3 factors, the server , the software and the website system. Here's a list of the server (also called hardware):

  • SP-32 Server - Intel Xeon E3-1270v6 - 32GB DDR4 ECC 2400 MHz - SoftRaid 2x2TB - at OVH.
  • Debian 8 prefered as Operative System.
  • /var partition setup to RAID0 (remember to create backup and download it reguarly for your website, setting for each virtualhost in ISPConfig3).
  • 8 extra IP adresses (DNS managed by domainseller, 1 IP for E-Mail, 8 IP for Website (9 IP in total).

This setup can be bought at a cheap price starting at around 60 euro monthly at my favorite hosting company OVH.
The server goes with 1Gbps upload (not capped) and 500Mbps download speed. It's including 6TB bandwidth (upload & download combined) per month - if you need extra traffic there are packages you can purchase (contact support).

To setup all this together takes time. Grab a cup of coffee, tea or chocolate first and then start with setting up the system... Click Read more to get details about how to setup the first steps of the system.

UK law and free porn

As I read the news UK is passing on a law next month to give users of free porn another hurdle (turnoff). Users need to prove they are 18 years old in order to access the pages. While I do agree not to show porn to minors and children below 18 years of age - this raises a new problem for website owners aswell. They need to figure out how to make it technical possible. The words free porn also comes to mind, because it will not be free for any longer. It´ll be locked away. I know this has been working for a few years in Germany - Link to article on dr.dk and Link to article on The Guardian.
