MilkyPond DNS domain ~7€/year (since 2014-07)
Toushirou's housing 41.56€/month Duck collocation with Sam (considering network switch and APC powerswitch shared rack space)

Note: private Internet connections involved in DuckCorp's services are not taken into account. Thorfinn was once hosted on a VM coupled with the Internet offer, this was not mentioned either.

Exceptional Expenses

Note: this does not take into account expenses before 2006 because most historical data were lost.

Note: machines, VMs, or containers hosted privately and involved in Duckcorp's services are not fully taken into account as owners kindly provided for their well being; this includes (by order of appearance):

  • Elwing (Duck): services reduced starting from 2010, and restarted in 2018 (see #637)
  • Daneel (Duck): in need of resurrection; was useful for backup and admin stuff
  • Korutopi (Arnau): stopped in 2018; was very useful for backup and monitoring
  • Nicecity (Pilou): backup (previously also monitoring)
  • Orthos (Pilou): monitoring
