Also not having to self-censor is a good thing too. A plus is no ads.
To achieve this, I used a service called Bitvps which lets you rent out instances by the hour / day / week. Without an account, or doxxing yourself on a customer database. Its a risk that you might lose the server details, but I think its a good proof of life thing too. Should the profile disappear, it also acts as a dead mans switch too.
