But first, a message from our staff:

hi! there's been a huge wave of new members and new instances recently, and that's a Lot of work.
i am tired and especially won't be very available in the next months for health reasons, so i won't be accepting new instances for a while.
if we already have something going, or you're an anarcho communist trans friend, it might be worth a try.
otherwise i will only be sharing my expertise to other instances and workers, and focusing on maintenance again, which will surely be way enough work already.

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. We offer many options and a very flexible service.
Contact us if you need anything specific, we'd be happy to find the perfect solution for your instance, and help you host it on your terms & location, customized to your community.

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 also used to host mastodon.social before it was migrated to its own dedicated infrastructure.

Beneath the scary facade, we are a collective of members and workers of the federated social internet, dedicated on providing a reliable and affordable hosting service. It wants to enable you to carve a space for yourselves in a complex network.
