Hosting Ptorx yourself gives you a greater level of control and privacy (assuming you set everything up correctly) but it does come at a cost: it's not a simple process. If you need a self-hosted Ptorx installation you can either follow this tutorial with no support should you get stuck, or you can hire us to do it for you by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Some steps will be implied, or vague and generalized, so you'll be expected to know how to fill in the blanks based on your environment and requirements.
- Access to a domain whose DNS records you can configure.
- A Linux server. We'll use Ubuntu.
Ptorx can run on fairly low-spec servers, but we recommend at least 1GB of RAM with 1-2GB of swap space.
