This website is hosted on a Raspberry Pi 4 (RaPi4) in my home.
The RaPi4 hosts even more websites:
- https://mangomanjaro.se – My and my girlfriend’s travel blog (not updated since 2012)
- https://mangolandet.se – Our lifestyle blog (not updated since 2013)
- https://ulfheijbel.se My girlfriend’s father’s website
- https://npcupproret.se My brother Pontus book website
It’s a great feeling to be able to host websites on such a small device from your own home.
The RaPi4 runs Webmin (https://webmin.com) . It is hooked up to an UPS, as electrical outages is quite common in our area.
In front of the RaPi4 is Cloudflare. Cloudflare handles all the DNS settings, and acts as a dynamic DNS provider.
Our home is run by renewable electricity and is connected to the Internet via optical fiber.
This is part of the beauty of the Internet.
Anyone can host a website on their computer while it’s connected to the Internet: The common network <3
I’ve been running a full node for Bitcoin (and Litecoin) for a couple of days now. It guarantees that I’ll always be able to make transactions since I can connect to the network through my own computer. That’s basically the idea of it. It took a while to sync the thing, but that was until I found out about this trick: to put the chainstate directory on a SSD and create symlink to it from the external drive to where I sync the blockchain. The Bitcoin Wiki has more detailed information.
