Ian McDowell is creating some hosting for Mastodon.network

I've been hosting a free and open instance of Mastodon in my spare time. It is one of the biggest and most active hosts, and has been steadily growing to over 6,000 users. 

Hosting this instance started out as a side project for me and has grown into its own vibrant community. I've been footing the bill for the servers, and it's been hosted on web servers I use for other sites that I host.

As it has grown and content has been uploaded and shared across the "fediverse", it has begun to put a strain on my servers, and I'll be needing to upgrade to handle the additional storage and CPU requirements.

In no way is anyone required or even encouraged to pitch in to help, and I am not trying to make a profit here. However, I would love if those who love this instance would assist in some of the costs of hosting.

Note: If you aren't comfortable with Patreon, or want to do a one-time donation, you can send it to my PayPal.
