@duncanhart You can go to Preferences->Moderation->Federation and search for the name of the instance and then click to see details (if you don't see it listed you can click the "Add New Domain Block" at the top).
Then you can either silence of suspend the domain.
@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.
mastodon.neophili.ac is a small Mastodon
