Fosshost has announced that they were shutting down. They first said "any day now" and then things got a bit smoother and we are supposed to get a notification at some point.
In the meantime, we need to figure out what to do. There are two main solutions:
Mutualised services would allow us to:
Places like Codeberg pages and JabberFR hosting were proposed to move our two main services.
Having our own VPS would allow us to:
Fosshost is offering free of charge hosting. Finding the same kind of hosting would be great but I'm not so optimistic.
I can manage the cost for some time if it's just a lower-end VPS (~5EUR/month) but I'd appreciate help for sure.
This is not to say mutualised services would all be free anyway, but it seems easier to find places that propose it for free.
Mutualised places also mentioned:
Uberspace.de would be another option for a mutalized place. Its AFAIK not free but "pay-what-you-want" (1€/month minimum?) and comes with some limitations of it's own, see for example: https://lab.uberspace.de/guide_prosody/
So it might be the worst of both worlds... but it is also cheaper than a VPS.
