The Deimos Project
The Deimos Project began in 2011 when two Sailor Moon nerds named MarioKnight and Elly
decided to pool their resources to build a
private server capable of hosting a complete collection of fandom media and information. Initially to bypass the cost of paying for
hosting (we have since moved from Dan's previous employer's datacenter), as well as to exert more control over the content they created by self-administrating via Linux.
The result is this:
Deimos - our massive storage bay
Deimos is the data center and backbone of our project. It has:
Sites We Host
As it is the goal of the Deimos Project to preserve the best of the Sailor Moon internet for enjoyment by the fandom, we are happy to provide affordable hosting to the following Sailor Moon sites:
Other Sites We HostNarsk.net | Nyoro~n Fansubs | Anime Jam Session | DJ Ranma S
We also have our own twitter that posts server updates. Very useful to our lovely hostees who may want to get the scoop on what's going on around here. :) Catch the news here @deimos_project!
How can I join the Deimos Project?
At this time, the Deimos Project is by invitation only. We are extremely selective about which sites we want to be a part of our
inner circle - invitees must have outstanding reputations within the fandom as a quality source. Often times, the popularity of those we
host coincides with intensive hosting needs, which are very costly one person to maintain alone. This project serves to off-set the costs
associated with hosting a popular Sailor Moon site.
Why is it named the "Deimos" Project?
In the series "Sailor Moon", Sailor Mars has two guardian crows named Deimos and Phobos. They are named after the real-life moons of the planet Mars. MarioKnight had originally created a file server for sharing Sailor Moon media files back in the late 1990s and early 2000s named Phobos. When Elly and MarioKnight decided to create a new Sailor Moon themed server, we wanted to keep in line with that tradition; so we named the new server after Deimos. As our project has expanded, we have not only needed to resurrect Phobos (making a completely functional duo of the original Deimos / Phobos server set!), but we've also needed to introduce a new core server to maintain our operations. We've named this central core Mars, since Phobos and Deimos serve as support to it - just like in the Sailor Moon anime and manga. :)
What happened to the original Phobos?
Phobos was MarioKnight's original file server, haphazardly built in November of 2003. Poor Phobots met its untimely death in spring of
2006 after multiple hard drive failures.
