It's sad to see #digitalocean drop support for #freebsd images. My own website has run on a FreeBSD image there for almost 5 years.

I really hope they reconsider this in the future. I can't imagine DO "maintaining" support for FreeBSD has much overhead, so this move seems more political to me than technical.

If anyone here knows of *BSD hosting alternatives to what DO offered, please let me know.

Shame on you @digitalocean

@thomasadam I have all my OpenBSD VPS with IONOS (ionos.com). You can select if your VPS should run in UK, US, DE or ES.

You can upload custom ISO images and have access to a virtual KVM so you can install whatever runs on top of VMWare ESXi.

Plus, their smallest VPS starts at 2EUR, so cheap enough to have a backup system.

@_xhr_ Thank you! I shall investigate that! At the moment I'm freeloading shell accounts from the tildeverse for a few things which feels wrong, but I can't continue to use DO either. So, thanks! :-)
