You can create your own Mastodon server even without technical knowledge 🐘

There are companies that provide Managed Hosting, where you pay a monthly fee and they do all the technical stuff including hosting, installation and updates.

You own and run the server, they do the tech stuff behind the scenes.

The best managed hosting companies for Mastodon are probably masto.host and federation.spacebear.ee

It's not just Mastodon either, there are lots of Fediverse platforms and other online services available through managed hosting. Try visiting growyourown.services for more options (or follow them at @homegrown).

@feditips @homegrown - Do you have any recommendations for managed Mastodon hosting in the US?

@cjonesy @homegrown

All the ones I know of are based on Europe, sorry. But I think you can still use them if you're outside Europe?

@feditips @cjonesy @homegrown
Yeah there's no technical reason for the managed host needing to be in the same country as the owner. Same for any kind of hosting service.

@cjonesy @feditips @homegrown

Since you have to use PayPal I think you can use it outside Europe but the pricing will be different because of currency difference. They are using Pounds. I would google x pounds to US dollars for price.

@AutisticGoblin @cjonesy @homegrown

Yup, you can use it internationally. 👍

Just one tiny correction, it's euros rather than pounds on these sites (the currency symbols are pretty similar).

@feditips @homegrown I started to provide such managed instances too webape.site/ - mastodon, peertube, friendica, matrix, nextcloud. For sure, the idea is to learn to host yourself, but in case anyone is interested....

Also ossrox.org offers Mastodon instances on request. Hosted on German servers.

They have experience through their privately offered instance (social.sp-codes.de), which runs great since the beginning and is always up to date.
