        Datacenter location?

        Please specify which data center. Is there a reason you cant host at home?

        Please provide specs, provider. And why are going run your node in datacenter?

        I’m a bit confused. By the application. Are you running node at home or data center?
        Are you meaning that you will run node at home and a “gateway” on a datacenter?
        Please confirm. I don’t support nodes on a datacenter. Thanks!

        If you can specify where you are using the node, that will help to give my support.

        Thank you very much that you looked at my application.
        A datacenter could be a option when my application is chosen.
        My brothers are gaming all the time so don’t now if its enough to support the network.
        I can start at home and the gateway in a datacenter if the rules are still the same in Augustus.
