Do you want to create your own Fediverse instances?

MANAGED HOSTING

By far the easiest way is to use a managed hosting service such as:

federation.spacebear.ee
cloud68.co/instances.html
masto.host
writefreely.host

The hosting service does the tech stuff, but you own and run the instance.

DO IT ALL YOURSELF

Alternatively, you can do all the tech stuff yourself. This requires a lot more skill, but it gives you a lot more flexibility with choosing software.

YUNOHOST

Halfway between these two extremes is @yunohost, server software which lets you install your own online services extremely easily:

yunohost.org

Once Yunohost is installed on a server, you can add and remove services yourself through a graphical interface.

Fediverse services include:

CastoPod
Friendica
FunkWhale
Glitch-Soc
Mobilizon
OwnCast
PeerTube
PixelFed
WordPress
WriteFreely

There are also many, many other services:

yunohost.org/en/apps?q=%2Fapps

Including WordPress in this category is nice since by default it does not speak ActivityPub.

But I understand that there is a plugin for WordPress to make it speaks ActivityPub.

Note: I love WordPress, albeit it is getting more and more bloated with features.

#wordpress #fediverse #activitypub

@liberation @feditips @yunohost for me, it is'nt bloathed with features, it's just getting better and better.

Wow, this is really ... don't know what to say ... it's just what I needed, but I didn't know it existed. So I will be hosting a lot myself soon. 🥰 Thanks for sharing and building!
