64i.de is a quite heavy project for me – Operated mostly by my self (Calvin, born 1999 in Cologne). I am hosting mail, websites, and other services for me and friends that don't want “Big Brother” to know about everything – Or let's say, it's a Hobby :D
Well, certainly it is. We are not using any services to track you. We even don't want that! I know by tracking I could increase my reach, but why should I?
We are hosting a lot of decentralized software that you may already have used.
Including this list, there is IPFS and a middle-node for the TOR-network and a lot more.
We are Virtualizing a lot (ProxMox/VSphere). Just because we can! It's easy to shuffle around machines from one V-Host to the next one. Because of this, we can maintain a bigger uptime than most of the other hobbiest hosted sites.
Here are we now:
Running a steady, quite reliably service for peoples, that want the WWW to be free again. Mostly open source, supporting big projects that want to get your anonymity back (Tor, IPFS, Torrent for Linux-Distros and other open source projects, Git-Mirrors from certain well known repos and Honey-Pots to detects kiddies).
At first, we tried to increase the stability of the mail server by implementing blacklists for incoming IPs and to block malicious attacks, but as we go further we did set up multiple machines to securely deliver your emails to the inboxes of our users.
First time, all our services we deployed directly on bare metal servers to further increase the speed. Firstly bridged together through TINC side to side VPN. (Afterwards IPsec)
At the time I first started specializing on Discord-bots and til to date they are running. Also, I started to build some Telegram-bots for certain status stuff like server uptime and monitoring for more than only my services.

This time at the end of 2015 to summer 2016 we had daily over 60 active TeamSpeak³ members on ts.64i.de.
Peak: 121 Users on 25.12.2015 19:15.
Fully run my own URL-shortener and some other web apps that "should" improve the workflow and give them basic (but privacy orientated) stats for about 1K People that used it back then.
I acquired a new hostname to use for all the V-Servers I had back then... (Never heard of virtualizing by my self back then).
All has started with mclp.de – I tried to start a "Minecraft Community". And soon had seen that this wasn't a good idea. :D
Well – Good old Minecraft-Kiddie times :P
