After doing more testing, I decided to go ahead and provide shared hosting for Mastodon instances.
This will be a trial but unless something goes horribly wrong, I believe that I can price it at €5/month for an instance of up to 100 users.
This can greatly diminish the cost of running small instances and remove the technical barrier from everyone who wishes to run their own Mastodon Instance.
Let me know what you think https://masto.host/#pricing-table
@f2f @hugo Another thing I've been meaning to work on is some kind of interactive, "one-click" installer that does all the setup for you. I mean, installation and updates are already really simple thanks to the Docker work that's been done, but data persistence, nginx, and SSL setup could still be automated more.
Eventually want to get the point where you can just get a VM (e.g. from DO), point your domain at it, run some install.sh script, and be up and running.
