What is Mastodon
Mastodon is an open-source social media software compatible with the ActivityPub protocol.
A Mastodon server can communicate with other servers in the Fediverse (other ActivityPub compatible servers), meaning its users can post, interact, follow or be followed by other users on remote servers.
No single company controls the Fediverse, and the servers in the network are independently operated. Anyone can run a server, even you!
What Users Say About Masto.host
"OpenStreetMap exists to take control of maps from centralized governments or megacorps. Thanks to Masto.host, we're taking control of our social media. The service from Hugo has been top-notch and stays out of our way, so we can get on with mapping the world, without having to think about sysadmining!"
"Supremely happy with Masto.host. My questions are answered super fast, uptime is amazing - really great service and hosting experience!"
"Having Hugo from Masto.Host manage the hosting side for us is a large part of the reason why Fosstodon has been so successful."
"If you want your own Masto instance, I can't recommend @hugo's masto.host service enough."
"If you are searching an easy way to manage your own instance, you are at the right place! Masto.host offers great services and @hugo is really responsive for helping."
"Juuuust in case you haven't heard, @hugo is kind of a bad ass. I submit trouble report (without a ticket, because i'm a filthy casual) and he triaged/addressed in 4 minutes flat. now *that* is some response time I can get behind, because its better than any SLA I've ever actually experienced."
"And thanks to the wonderful @mastohost, I am up and running again with my own instance and Mastodon has never felt so slick :)"
