@WilliamMcGirr Well, you can either get a free Masto.host subdomain when you sign up for your server or buy a domain from a domain registrar like https://www.namecheap.com/ or any other of the many available. If you do a search engine search for "domain registrars" you will get a bunch of them to choose from.
Right i have my domain, TwoPeacocks.org
I would like to set this up as a community, i am nee to this please forgive my amature understanding, how do i turn this on.
I do not have servers ?
Do i buy hosting with any hosting company?
Do you know which company is the most secure and well protected from government shit ?
@WilliamMcGirr I do offer hosting for Mastodon on https://masto.host/ but there are others. You can find here https://docs.joinmastodon.org/user/run-your-own/ both the list of other providers of Mastodon hosting and instructions if you want to tackle installing yourself manually on a server with a hosting provider that you want.
Personally I never had any issues or contact by any governments and I have been doing this for a few years.
