Does anyone have any experience with paid Mastodon hosting?

I'm specifically thinking about issues with or experience with DDOS protection.

Boosts welcome!

Alternatively, I could simply create a dropbox host with Cloudflare.

I know people don't love Cloudflare- I'm not super keen on it, but if the alternative is a DDOS, I'd rather have a functional instance.

@emacsen what do you mean by Dropbox host?

I'm using the free ampere VPS in Oracle cloud to host my instance. It has 24GB of RAM for free, so far... I don't imagine it will last.

@mwt
I think I had a brainfart. I meant digitalocean.

Does Stuxhost do managed Mastodon? I know they do managed Nextcloud.

@trebach @stux @BollerwagenPicard @Stuxhost

Sounds good. :)

Reiterating- I need a Mastodon instance that's managed, backed up, keep current with patches, etc. and has DDOS protection (probably through a CDN- but this would be managed by the provider).

@emacsen @trebach @BollerwagenPicard @Stuxhost

We can do this for sure! :blobcathearts: We manage a few instances this way including updates, cleaups, DDoS protection etc 💪

Please send me a DM for more info :blobcathearts:

@emacsen
I am using masto.host paid hosting for several years and I am totally happy with it.

@emacsen Hi, @hugo is offering a nice service, we use and are very pleased :-)

@emacsen Hello,

You can see here masto.host/infrastructure/ the infrastructure of Masto.host.

The DDOS protection is the one included on all services by OVH, the company that houses all my servers for Masto.host: ovh.com/world/anti-ddos/

If you have any questions or if I can help with something feel free to ping me.
