Hey guys I'm working on something,  it's basically a localized instagram with all the core and additional features. The server cost budgeting is my problem.  If I were to have 100,000 active users everyday how much will it cost me for a year and which hosting company should I use cause I prefer Amazon?

    • HI lucipher - I would suggest that you review this article here: https://una.io/page/view-post?id=178 which will give you a basic guide as to what to expect for a server load at various stages of a sites growth. With that information to support your calculations, you could connect with the major cloud hosting providers and seek quotes for your requirements - you will find that they are very competitive and I imagine would be supportive of innovative startups based in Africa. The key advantage with Cloud Hosting is the ability to rapidly increase capacity to cater for a surge in demand, so there is no need to purchase a big server straight up, you can easily upgrade as your membership grows. UNA also supports remote storage, which will help in economising the server requirements for a busy data intensive site such as you describe.

          • I'm waiting on this as well. For the time being i just changed what is seen on mobile device by going to studio > pages and hide what i want to hide, See picture.

            • I think limiting what shows on the mobile app to the very essential is key, under page and block visibility. The less it has to render the better the speed I think, though I am yet to activate this on my site.

              I have noticed that on the UNA mobile apps  you can't use the dark mode or lucid.  So the question is that is this feature allowed to be used?

                • Hey lucipher -

                  The only way I have been able to change the theme is by going in to Studio and only in the Protean module changing the mix. See in the screenshots

                    • Yes always, I already thought, it's not very pretty and it does not help. has the limit so empty to download, replace with the nickname, would not it be a good idea?

                          • Also your site will need to updated to UNA 10 & you will need to have Nexus app installed.
