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

One of the perks of using is mentions get colored based on instance name for easy identification!

Is anybody using Stylish or a similar browser plugin to make their separate instances/accounts distinguishable by color?

I'm starting to see the owners of instances use unique favicons - I hope that catches on...

It's a black day for #russian internets: a bill draft was proposed by Russian government that bans usage of #VPN, #Tor, and other anonymizers. This happened only 10 days after a Tor exit node administrator #DmitryBogatov was arrested. Being anonymous is now a crime in Russia... #freeBogatov

my crazy grandfather calls HTML "Himmel" or "Himmel The markup language"

I'm not sure why he thinks this is correct.

Got a great idea for a Mastodon instance? This is your reminder that @hugo is looking for people to test his experimental turnkey Mastodon hosting service.

(Not an ad, I'm just a potential user who wants this idea to take off.)

Hey fediverse, @TQ, @rixx, and me want to motivate people to ditch the birdsite for a week, and to use Mastodon exclusively.

Which hashtag would you use to promote this campaign on the birdsite? Any nice ideas? :)

(See for previous discussion.)

Guys, I decided to start a test service that hosts, installs and updates Mastodon instances.
If you want to run your own instance and don't want all the trouble of messing around with code, contact me and I will set it up for you.
Check out the information page I just hacked:
