Who owns these servers?

Out of curiosity I have some questions. Are these servers you own? Or are they servers you rent from hosting services? Are any of them dedicated servers? Are some of them virtual servers? Please explain to this newb. Maybe create a page on it instead of answering me in detail here. --Timeshifter (talk) 21:46, 14 January 2015 (GMT)

Hi, we rent them from Southparkfan (talk) 21:56, 14 January 2015 (GMT)
Currently these are virtual servers that are hosted with DigitalOcean. The plan is within the next month however to locate to a datacenter keeping the virtual server pattern but hosted on our own physical servers. When this comes, they will be registered as under Orain, so Orain as an entity will own the servers although I will be penciled down by the datacenter as owning them as part of my job.

Thanks for the info. Is there a page explaining the big picture? I see the little pages in this category. Maybe create a "Servers" page that links to all the small pages, and to the category. Combined with a few paragraphs of overview. I think it would help with donations (see meta:Talk:Donations). Currently servers is a redirect to this category. --Timeshifter (talk) 17:30, 15 January 2015 (GMT)
