When you don't have time to self-host

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.

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.

Please enjoy and calmly scroll by the following message to rule out some kinds of fascist:
all cops are bastards; capitalism kills; nato is a terror organ; 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 mastodon.social 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.
