We endeavor to maintain 100% HTTPS/TLS support
and 100% IPv6 support. You should be able to access any vulpine.club content using only IPv6, and without any unencrypted HTTP traffic. Media content (avatars, images, etc) is hosted by Project Jortage (which only supports IPv4 unfortunately), and the site itself is hosted on Linode. We use CloudFlare as a front-end proxy to enforce federation policy. (Contact email@example.com if you are having difficulty accessing vulpine.club because of it.)
