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

@hugo The digitalocean is much cheaper and the configuration is much better than yours for 5$. What are your advantages?

@f2f DO doesn't install, update and give customer support for Mastodon instances. Besides, I am awesome, does that count? 😂

@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 script, and be up and running.

@chris @f2f I don't use Docker but have some bash scripts to help with installation of servers, making multi-redis work in different ports but there is still a lot of manual labour involved.
When I have something solid and tested, I will share it on GitHub ;)

@hugo @chris I'd love to see your scripts, not for commercial activity. Purely as a devops. Very interesting.

Hugo Gameiro @hugo

@f2f @chris I will share them for commercial activity or not. I will let anyone use them for whatever they want.
I need to take some time to do a script that works for everyone and not my custom setup. The way they are right now would not work for anyone.
But I will share them.
