Curious to see if there are those out there who would be willing to pay a nominal fee to get something self-hosted for them

Eg: I run my own servers, spin up docker containers with your service, and you manage everything from the front-end

@brandon A few questions...
Where will the biz be located (country)?
Where will the servers be (country)?
How big will your legal fund be?
There may be more after answers.

@geniusmusing Right now I intend it just to be something that I can use to support my blog/podcast and my personal Gitea instance.

I want to get something in Sweden

Legal fund? None yet

Remember GDPR is there and not sure if being just a host will get you off the hook, also you may want to get some legal help when doing paperwork and not sure if different in CA but in US you would also want to be a corporation of some kind to protect yourself.

@geniusmusing 🤔 Good points, right now I'm just planning stuff but it's good to think about during this process

I am in Canada, yes
