Social Network Hosting

Our Social Network Hosting services provide you with your own social network server, using the Mastodon software.

Why have your own social network server?

Absolute Control

Having your own social network server gives you absolute control over your own voice on the Internet. It's your server, subject to your rules, not anyone elses. It will exist as long as you want it to exist.

No Time-Wasting Algorithms

The big social networks use algorithms to keep you engaged endlessly by adding messages from people you do not follow to your timeline. Your own social network won't do this. When your friends are not posting, the timeline stops, and you can get on with other things in your life.

How do I interact with other people?

Globally

You are not isolated on your own server. You can interact with people on other social network servers. You can exchange messages and follow each other much like you would on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

We call this network of federated social media servers the 'Fediverse'.

Locally

Your own server can be just for you, for anyone you invite, or you can open it up to the entire world. It's up to you!

What does it cost?

This varies depending on the number of users you want to accomodate, how long you want to retain messages and media, etc. It can be as low as $5/month for a small single-user mastodon server.
