What is a pubnix?

A pubnix is a Unix server provided by a person or a group to the public with non-commercial recreational goals. A pubnix is a server running UNIX or a UNIX-like operating system that is opened to the public.

What can I do on the pubnix?

Quite a lot! You can run containers, set up a website, and learn some amount of Linux system administration.

How do I get started?

First, you need to register an account. After registering, you need to wait a while because we manually check each registration. If you get accepted, you will receive an email.

What are your system's specs?

Guess you'll have to find out. Join today!

I joined, but I have no idea what to do.

No worries! We put out tutorials on how to do common things on our wiki.

Do you have a place to discuss the pubnix?

Yep! We have a Matrix room and an XMPP MUC to discuss the pubnix.

10GB isn't enough for me!

Money doesn't grow on trees :P. To make the project sustainable, we have decided to make extra storage (upto 30GB) on the Pubnix require at minimum an yearly donation of 10$ (or equivalent in UPI/Crypto). Once you have donated, please contact us so we can give you the extra storage once verified.
