This is Servers.coop – we're making a recipe to set up a community server provider, and cooking up our own dog-food by offering Virtual Private Server space.
We'll be starting out on donated hardware, powered by renewable energy, in Ashton-under-Lyme in the UK.
We'll be launching a crowdfunding campaign shortly to make sure costs are covered for the first year – follow us on here, join our Matrix space https://matrix.to/#/!bDeUsKuqTQwBjBEAuj:autonomic.zone?via=autonomic.zone&via=matrix.org&via=gottsnack.net , or look out for details of our upcoming e-mail list.
(PS thanks to Sunbeam.city for hosting us on here)
If you're setting up a server hosting provider, you could use the Servers.coop tech or organisational recipes (or both!) to give you a head-start, and get help from the Servers.coop community.
If you're setting up a server, you can get ethical hosting:
1. Right now, from the Servers.coop coalition members Mediablaze¹ and Cyberia²
2. Very soon: from the upcoming Servers.coop Beta, hosted on donated hardware in Ashton-under-Lyne
3. Medium-term: from any one of a network of Servers.coop-aligned collectives.
Sunbeam City is a anticapitalist, antifascist solarpunk instance that is run collectively.
