After NSA issue, there are several people who are worried about their privacy (even in Diaspora). So, I believe we should give them details about poddery.com's hosting. Moreover, as this was a Crowdsourced campaign, we are resposible to tell the public how we spent the money.
I suggest these details
1. How much money we go?
2. How much we spent.
3. What are the VPS Specifications?
4. Where (in which country) poddery is hosted?
5. Why we are not using Amazon hosting.

I couldn't find any such details in poddery.com website.

I'll just update with the details I know.

The VPS is provided by KnightSwarm Handelsbolag at a discounted rate. The cost is $486.00 USD for 3 years till 2016-10-01.

The VPS specs are as below:
4GB RAM, 6 Cores, 80GB RAID10 SAS, 6800GB monthly, 1Gbps Port Speed, 1IPv4, /64 IPv6.
Server Located in Amsterdam region (Dronten, Netherlands)

Apart from the cost of server, $15 was spent for a new AlphaSSL certificate from IPXCore

Also, I believe the domain was also renewed, which is still with Godaddy.

Done. Extremely minimal as I am not at all good in designing.
