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
@hugo I think mastodon would be cool when you have people living off-grid, you can create individual communities that can function in isolation. Like a way for people to communicate in an isolated village. Then again. I might be over thinking this.
In my head the combination of a fediverse and mesh messaging go well together, although I have to think how exactly they could work together.
@BillPosters I think there are interesting use cases to talk with people with similar interest by joining a specific instance. But it could also be from a location (eg: school). There are some really cool use cases that I can think of but think that many more will come that we cannot even imagine.
