This server can now run Gopherspaces, with the help of Gophernicus. Users can now build & present their own Gophersoaces, which can be accessed through a browser that's capable of supporting the Gopher protocol (such as the eLinks, Lynx & gopher browsers available through TechShell,) or through Floodgap System's Gopher proxy.

It's been four years since experimenting with the Acer Aspire V5-171-6815 Ultrabook as a web server; even though the experiment was a complete success, the server had to be taken offline, since the bandwidth needed to host so many users would be staggering &, at the time, the ISP maintained an unreasonably low bandwidth cap, making the service infeasible. Thankfully, with a change in ISP & hardware, this service is back up & running once again, this time with both free & paid hosting options available.
