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 masto.host/#pricing-table

@hugo say, would you be interested in something like this here? octodon.social/@TQ/837425

I currently have no idea how financing could work, I just like the idea. Thoughts?

@TQ what do you have in mind when you say "provide a safe testing space"?
Because a testing instance it can be something like @bea is doing here: glitch.social/users/bea/update
Giving advise, help is a completely different thing.

@hugo I didn't know that instance, it's quite interesting! But I had something different in mind: providing a testing space for users, helping them to learn about the way Mastodon works. I've heard quite often from people who wished for some kind of "sandbox".

@TQ if someone wants to try that, I am willing to help. Just contact me :)
