Setting up a kink instance, help required, boosts good, replies even better
So, I'm thinking of setting up a kink instance for various reasons and was wondering what a good hosting service would be for such a thing.
The requirements would be: as much control over the server as possible including being able to choose what mastodon version/fork to use and possibly other config files for the OS or web server and firewall itself, basically need it to be as secure as possible and I am not sure if I completely trust others to do that for me.
Not in the hands of 'big tech', so if possible nothing owned by google, microsoft, amazon etc.
Good enough spec/bandwidth for an instance of a few so that it doesn't run too slow and/or runs out of space/bandwidth.
