fyi.. i would highly appreciate if #tchncs would get a few more monthly microdonations, i don't ask for much, just a few additional people donating $1 per month would do a huge impact and actually secure the infrastructure of tchncs.
I try to come up with actual numbers in a few days, however Liberapay is still not working and we're running partly on savings from the time Liberapay lost its provider, this is not super awesome. :)
Can I run a #Mastodon instance for my family without remote fellow/federation? Where can I configure this?
mastodon hosting costs
and just to add some more to what @maple said here https://computerfairi.es/@maple/100238728808816998
- hetzner.cloud runs mastodon for 6€/month
- scaleway.com for 8€/month (but you need very reliable backups)
- instead of Amazon S3, wasabi.com is 5$/month up to 1TB
- you could also host both on a smol dedicated server with a disk, it's not very fast but would prolly handle it fine for 15€/month https://www.online.net/en/server-dedicated/start-2-s-sata
(and the hardest part is taking care of it afterwards and keep that in mind)
