Supporter Account

The supporter account on Blinkenshell is a paid shell with more features and resources than the basic free shell.

  • Larger disk quota (1000 MB)
  • More processes (5 background processes, higher limits on nproc and RSS memory)

  • Ability to run IRC bouncers and bots (max 1 connection to each IRC network however)
  • One listening TCP/UDP port for bouncer, mini-IRCd, MUD, Mosh, TheLounge etc (ask for port opening)

  • Point a custom domain to the website (www.yoursite.com)
  • Option to have a custom vhost with your domain as reverse (extra 1€/mo/IP)
  • Dynamic web pages with PHP or CGI (one fastcgi process)

  • MySQL database

Supporter accounts still have to follow the same rules as basic free shell accounts, with the exception of IRC bots and bouncers. If you do not follow the rules, your account will be temporarily disabled at first. If you break the rules several times, your account will be disabled for a longer period of time. You will not get a refund for the time you can not use the account if your account gets disabled because of a rule violation.

If you want to go back to your regular free account after the subscription period that's no problem. You just have to make sure you're not using more than 100 MB quota in your homedir, and restart all processes to make the old memory limits apply. All the extras will ofcourse be removed, but you can keep the same account.


The cost of a supporter account is now 3€/month (or however much more you want to give per month) and the preferred way of payment is via Patreon.

If you prefer the old pricing model you can also use Paypal and pay 400SEK/year.

There is no setup fee on any payment option and with Paypal you can get a full refund within 14 days if you are not satisfied with the service.

You can use this button to pay via PayPal or use Patreon.
