Proud of how the server architecture of mastodon.social and the code of Mastodon is keeping up with the load, but wishing for this to transform into new Mastodon servers springing up.
If you were considering starting a Mastodon server, right now would be a pretty good time. Anyone can do it from source, see docs:
There are also hosting providers (not affiliated with me) which are super easy to work with without technical knowledge, like masto.host and hostdon.jp
@Gargron keeping a list of different mastodon hosting providers here https://www.are.na/fediverse/mastodon-hosts
@liaizon @Gargron https://app.spacebear.ee/mastodon is another mastodon (and also the hometown fork) hosting provider.
@tklk @Gargron thanks! added! I thought they only did pixelfed for some reason!
@liaizon @Gargron (full disclosure I’m spacebear) I started with pixelfed and peertube, and at the beginning of this month I launched Mastodon and Hometown hosting. I’m looking at adding funkwhale next.
