I'm trying to take more control of my data (i.e. stop using Google for everything), so I'm trying to figure out what to do.

Does anyone know of a checklist or an extensive guide to self-hosting and related things?

I've looked into a few services but it's confusing, there are so many things out there. Does anyone use NextCloud?


@mprv I've been doing this in varying degrees for about 8 years. I use self-hosted Nextcloud for files, contacts and calendar with Plex for serving media from there (I did use Emby for a while). I've never found a decent Google Docs replacement, and I've decided that it's easier to pay for an email account. I use Gandi as they include email with there domain, and it has a good feature set.
