I decided to offer managed hosting for Akkoma. I think more people should have the choice of running an instance, and I also understand not everyone is willing or capable of doing the technical work for it.
I’ve been running Pleroma/Akkoma for several years for myself now, so I think it’s something I can do for others as well. I’ve spend time in the past years working on the software in some form or another, so this is just another way to donate my time to a project I believe in.
The idea is to have a financially healthy project based on donations. There’s an “advised price” of €6/month for an instance, which I think is a reasonable price to keep the service financially healthy. Income and expenditure will be transparent, and all money will be used for the service, or to support other, related, projects.
I wrote out things more detailed on https://hosting.ilja.space/. If you’re interested in having an instance this way, check the site for how to get one.
Feedback is obviously welcome
