Corehost offers virtual private servers and is very emphatical about free software (; fees are steep though.

Have you considered hosting it yourself? There are projects like Freedombox aimed at making personal servers on small devices easier to set up and use. You could make wonders with a cheap, low-power ARM computer and a relatively reliable Internet connection. The only downsides I see compared to a VPS is the physical management of your server and dealing with dynamic IPs.

Hi all,

Does anyone have suggestions for finding server space where I could set up Friendica?  Ideally this would be a service that is well-disposed towards Free Software and its role in society.  I'm sure I could find a web server, and maybe it would support Friendica, but it would be great to work with people who understand my goals.

Some gratuitous background:  I wrote some months ago about setting up a small personal server to run Friendica and possibly other services.  I've made enough progress in that direction to realize how important it is to do this securely, and it's going to take me considerable time to achieve that.  It's still a goal, though.  Getting space on someone else's server is a second-best option.  In addition, my mother wants to learn about Facebook, so I feel there is some urgency to offer an alternative.
