If you support Funtoo Linux, we also want to support ''you'' in your Funtoo Linux adventure. Supporters of Funtoo Linux of at least $15/mo can request a Funtoo Linux virtual container. Here are the configurations currently being offered:
+
  
{{TableStart}}
+
Please keep DISQUS chats at the top of talk pages.
<tr class="danger"><th>Price</th><th>RAM</th><th>CPU Threads</th><th>Disk Space</th></tr>
+
<tr><td>'''$15/mo'''</td><td>4GB</td><td>6 CPU Threads</td><td>50GB</td></tr>
+
<tr><td>'''$30/mo'''</td><td>12GB</td><td>12 CPU Threads</td><td>100GB</td></tr>
+
<tr><td>'''$45/mo'''</td><td>48GB</td><td>24 CPU Threads</td><td>200GB</td></tr>
+
{{TableEnd}}
+
  
As you can see, this pricing is well below market rates, and includes fast SSD (solid state disk) storage, one IPv4 address, and lots of bandwidth. We believe that by enabling you to do great things with Funtoo Linux, our community and technology will benefit. So we see this as a win for everyone.

== Container FAQ ==
 
  
;How do I sign up?: Set up a monthly support subscription via PayPal or credit card on our [[Support Funtoo]] page. Then see the [[#Getting Started|Getting Started]] section below.
+
=== Fancy Boxes ===
 +
TODO: Describe fancy* boxes, and explain the most fool-proof way of using them. Use this format, exactly:
  
;Do I get root access?: Yes, you get full root access to your container.
+
{{fancyimportant|1=
 +
Now you can put lots of funky stuff in here, like <tt>html</tt> tags, etc, and not
 +
have a problem with the parameter getting passed as the first parameter.
  
;Can I reboot my container?: Yes, reboot normally and it will come back up.
+
Cool!
 +
}}
  
;What will be the hostname of my container?: It will be something.host.funtoo.org.
+
=== watching pages ===
 +
we should have a section dedicated to explaining how to watch pages that an editor is knowledgeable about, and how to use the watch list to keep the pages clean, concise, and accurate.
 +
ie if i know about the web server stack i watch that, and pages related to that... (i think i might need to turn off watching pages i touch automatically...)
  
;Can I also point my DNS to the container's IP address, so I can use another hostname?: Yes, of course.
+
To watch, or unwatch a page:
 +
in the menu bar {{c|Actions > Watch}} or {{c|Actions > Unwatch}}
  
;Can you set up reverse DNS?: Yes -- this is not done by default, but if you need it, I can get it set up for you.
+
To display the watchlist:
 +
in the menu bar {{c|account > watchlist}}
  
;How much bandwidth is ''really'' included?: For most typical uses of your container, this is not something you need to worry about. New containers will be on a 1Gbps uplink, which will be shared among all containers. Many existing containers are on servers with a 100Mbps uplink and can be moved to the 1Gbps uplink upon request. Our bandwidth plan is set up so that everyone should have lots of burstable bandwidth, assuming light use at other times. If you have continuous high bandwidth needs, please email me to discuss first.
+
rss codes should be also generated to easily track the watch list so everyone gets pinged when a change occurs. [[User:Threesixes|Threesixes]] ([[User talk:Threesixes|talk]]) 03:55, March 27, 2015 (UTC)
  
;Why is my Portage tree read-only?: A read-only Portage tree is mapped into <code>/var/src/portage</code> and is used by default by all containers. It is automatically updated hourly, so there is no need to run <code>emerge --sync</code>. This saves disk space. There is generally no need to have your own local Portage tree, but if you want to have one, you can remove the <code>PORTDIR</code> setting in <code>/etc/make.conf</code> and run <code>emerge --sync</code>.
+
=== Special Characters ===
  
;How do I upgrade the kernel in my VPS?: A virtual container shares a kernel with the host, so you do not have the ability to change the kernel from "inside" the container.
+
To produce pipes: <pre>{{!}}</pre>
 +
generates: {{!}}
  
;Can I run Docker inside my container?: The OpenVZ development team is the largest code contributor to the Linux Containers kernel code (which is part of Docker,) and we use OpenVZ, but right now it is not possible to run LXC inside an OpenVZ container. This may change with the release of newer OpenVZ kernels based on 3.x.
+
To produce equals: <pre>{{=}}</pre>
 +
generates: {{=}}
  
{{fancyimportant|This next bit of information is important. A number of people have temporarily locked themselves out of their containers by setting up a firewall incorrectly. I plan to develop a firewall management UI that configures a firewall for you to make this step easier. For the time being, please avoid setting up a firewall unless you ''really'' need one.}}

 +
at the top of a page.
  
;Can I set up my own firewall?: Before you do, please contact me (Daniel) and let me know. I need to flip a few switches in your container to make iptables work properly. Otherwise it will silently fail on stateful firewalls and you may end up locking yourself out of your container.
+

;Can I set up OpenVPN in my container?: Yes, quite a few people do this, but contact me first so I can enable tun/tap devices for you.
+
=== Minor edits ===
 +
Check minor edits to note that your commit is a small commit.  A minor edit can be filtered out of logs when searching through them.
  
;Is it okay to host a game server?: Yes, many people do.
+
=== video playlists ===
 +
i have several examples of how to embed playlists in [[Programming]] but there are no examples in how to wiki.  
  
;Is it okay to run Folding@Home, Hentai@Home, or other services that donate CPU power or bandwidth to other services?: No, this is not okay. The CPU and network resources provided to you are for your own use only and are not to be donated to other projects.
+
=== links ===
 +
fixing a broken link brought this subject to my attention.
 +
[www.link.com is this a bug?] && [link.com shouldn't this work?] do not work...  brackets or not.  
  
;Is it okay to use my container to be a compute-focused server for another Open Source project?: Check with me first. Most of the time, this will be okay, unless CPU and/or IO utilization will be very high and continuous, and thus unsuitable for shared computing resources.
+
no protocol defined external links <nowiki>[//test.com //test.com]</nowiki> produces (use these style links)
 +
[//test.com //test.com]
  
;Is it okay to host commercial efforts on my container?: Yes, this is fine, as long as you assume full responsibility for the quality of service. Funtoo containers are provided with no service level agreements or warranty.
+
no bracket links:
 +
http://google.com
 +
(regardless that this service only offers https)

$ ##i##ssh-keygen -t rsa

If you specify a passphrase when prompted, your local private key (<code>~/.ssh/id_rsa</code>) will be encrypted, and ssh will prompt you for this passphrase prior to connecting. If you don't specify a passphrase, then you won't need to enter anything to connect but it you need to be extra careful that you don't allow others to access your private key as it will be immediately useable by them to access any of your accounts.

The file you will need to send me is <code>~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub</code> or <code>~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub</code> (if you used the <code>-t dsa</code> option with <code>ssh-keygen</code>. This is the ''public'' key... it's safe to send over email since all I or anyone else can use it for is to grant you access to a system via your private key. Just don't send your private key to me. :)

=== VPS Usage Rules ===

+
{{fancyimportant|Please read these policies and make sure you understand them. This is not an exhaustive list.}}
+
 
+
The VPS is for '''your personal use'''. No reselling.
+
 
+
There is currently no Web panel - these servers will be set up using my own automated tool and you will be provided with ssh access. I can periodically reload VPS images as needed.  
+
 
+
This service is offered as a thank-you gift to Funtoo Linux supporters as long as sufficient capacity is available, with no warranty for uptime or anything else.
+
 
+
There are no refunds.
+
 
+
While I host several production sites on this infrastructure, you assume all risk for hosting your production services on your VPS.
+
 
+
I will make a best-effort-only attempt to provide support via IRC and email, and do not offer 24/7 support for your VPS.  
+
 
+
'''US-Legal activities only. No spam will be tolerated.'''
+
 
+
These VPS systems are intended for funtoo enthusiasts only. I am providing (particularly in the higher-level plans) generous default resource limits with the understanding that the VPS will be used for general Funtoo use and server stuff.
+
 
+
Compiling with -j(NUM-CPUS+1) is encouraged (this is Funtoo, after all -- I want you to enjoy fast compiles :), but it's not okay to continually max CPU, IO, or network utilization. '''So, no folding@home, massive file sharing, etc. '''
+
 
+
I am currently not supporting IPv6 but will look into adding such support if there is enough interest.  
+
 
+
'''You are responsible for backups. '''
+
 
+
I reserve the right to change plans and pricing in the future.
