here in UK you have to get a business grade connection and pay a small amount extra for it. But with a lot of UK home ISP connections they actively discourage running servers from there, some ISPs even forbid it in conditions of service (not sure how much its enforced), but dynamic IPs traffic shaping and sometimes locked down routers make it difficult anyway...
In the Philippines, almost everyone is behind CGNAT, so that locks out almost everyone from hosting servers from their homes.
this fedi instance i'm on is selfhosted, but i had to use a reverse ssh proxy to do that, not the kind of thing we want if we need more people to selfhost.
