the Fediverse Monster hosts 120 instances and their 29,891 members

We are currently very busy restructuring and consolidating our hosting service, we are unlikely to accept new applications at the moment.
See you in a few months maybe!

When you can't host it yourself

Hosting your own social media can be liberating but also painstaking and costly. With the Fedi Monster we share expenses, servers, skills, and you can enjoy your instance that we keep running smoothly. The monster's core idea is to enable you to carve a space for yourselves in a complex and vast network; without relying on a predatory corporation.

We offer many options and a very flexible service, trying to strike a balance in community customization and security and cost for all of us. Contact us if you have specific needs, and we'll see what we can do.

Who and What we are

An anarcho-communist collective of fediverse instance administrators, server caretakers, programmers and other workers, dedicated to providing a reliable, affordable, and ethical hosting service to many kinds of online communities.

We will not host instances and communities that promote or support capitalism, fascism, classism, imperialism, war and militarism, nazism, white supremacy, religious supremacism, police states, are directly affiliated with states, or more at our discretion. and the monster's pronouns are it/them.

About the Fediverse Monster

Formerly known as 'MaaStodon', it has been operating since 2017 for a few internet communities to improve their hosting conditions and make this process cheaper and easier. It even used to host before it was migrated to its own dedicated infrastructure.

It is also organized against profit, meaning that all income will be used to pay expenses, fund workers, and finally excess will be redistributed charitably. It firmly promises you that it will never sell your data to a third party; keep you locked in a subscription; or give power to outside investors.

Our finances are transparently managed though OpenCollective where our instance administrators, all their members, and third-parties interested in funding a middle ground between corporate hosting and self-hosting can contribute.
