So, Fediverse, need your advice… I need two things:
* Based in the EU
* As ethical as possible given the industry (extra points for green) but definitely not engaged in any surveillance-based shenanigans and, of course, #GDPR compliant
Goal: have people be able to register a domain name and have a VPS set up at it in as little time as possible.
Any suggestions? :)
@tmjwid Sounds like a lovely service. Will definitely keep it in mind for our own hosting but the 24 hour turnaround would be a deal-breaker for this. Appreciate your help :)
@tmjwid PS. Love the fact that they’re a not-for-profit :)
@aral yeah for prod issues it'll be less than ideal. It's a nice service though so I'm glad you like the look of it. For personal stuff it's ideal though.
@tmjwid It sure sounds it :) Thanks again :)
@aral maybe transip.nl is something for your needs? I know they have an domainAPI
@frankmeeuwsen Thanks, Frank. Sadly (for me), it looks like it might be in Dutch only.
@aral Yeah so I see now. I checked with them (in Dutch) if they offer their site and service in English as well somehow. I can recommend them. But I understand you would need an English site...
@frankmeeuwsen Yes, sadly, I am linguistically-challenged :)
@tim Thanks, Tim :)
@aral I don't trust anyone, and kinda work from there.
Let me know if you find a better alternative. Happy to listen. ;-)
@tim Haha, indeed :)

@nclm Neat :)
@nclm Hey Nicolas, they’re the only ones I actually know someone at and I’m in touch with (apart from the excellent IWantMyName.com – whom I use – and CloudScale.ch – whom I also use – neither of whom, sadly, have an API. So yeah, Gandi is a definite possibility.
GDRP is no problem. API too... But we need 2-3Months for a production ready service. Domains are not handled by the Zeug Plattform. They are seperated to Port53 which needs until December to get finished.
Production ready = stable to handle +3 VMs per Account.
@aral sounds like you’re up to something good. Looking forward to seeing what it is!
@aral I don't know how ethical they are, but I do my VM hosting at Hetzer (.de), and my DNS hosting at dns-api.com, but that doesn't provide registration. I tend not to register new domains much, though. (But I love creating subdomains via git push.)
@liw Thanks, Lars, will check them out; appreciate it :)
