I want to run a small hobby server over the Tor network and be able to share the onion address with my friends. The server reachability will be intermittent. Can I keep using the same onion address?

Note: I am aware that uptime tracking can be used to isolate my server if it goes up and down and thus is a deanonymization threat. At this point this is not a concern for this project.


Your hidden service's onion address is generated based on your hidden service's public key, so as long you keep that the same your onion address will stay the same.
