-**For who?** All members have access to the VPN.+In the past we used to offer our own VPN server for members to use to access Proto systems off-campus. As this was rarely used, it was discontinued.

- +
-**General information** +
- +

-  * You'll receive a **hosting username** and accompanying password. +
-  * Each database you configure will have its own username and password. +
-  * Each e-mail inbox you configure has its own password. +
-  * **SSH access** to the server is **not** possible, except for the //Have You Tried Turning It Off And On Again committee//+
-  * **Secure your website with SSL**. You can use the DirectAdmin built-in Let's Encrypt module to request free auto-renewing certificates. The //Have You Tried Turning It Off And On Again committee// will check this periodically. +

-  * Host: **atalanta.saproto.nl** +

-  * Host**atalanta.saproto.nl** +Shared hosting is provided through SNT Hornet. More information about Hornet can be found at [[https://www.snt.utwente.nl/diensten/hornet.html]]. Due the fact that multiple committees can request this hosting and SNT only provides us with one free Hornet environment, we do not offer the free version of Hornet. Hosting therefore costs a minimum of 10,- per year.
