I'm trying to take more control of my data (i.e. stop using Google for everything), so I'm trying to figure out what to do.

Does anyone know of a checklist or an extensive guide to self-hosting and related things?

I've looked into a few services but it's confusing, there are so many things out there. Does anyone use NextCloud?

@mprv using nextcloud for personal files (but also at work) using yunohost for personal self hosting, cloudron.io for work related self hosting. secure, signed, self hosted Email with cloudron is a piece of cake :)
both Yunohost & Cloudron have an amazing community and app's list to try and find your best approach to all these questions.

Nextcloud is also really cool with Davx (ex davdroid) to reclaim your contacts, calendars and have them sync with your phone.

I've setup Yunohost on Digital Ocean and Mail server.

Unfortunately, DO is blocking SMTP port?

Which provider do u use?


@noorul DO can unblock the SMTP port on request, I did this once when launching CIN server..
but personally I'm using Contabo (german)


@noorul also have remains of domains at dreamhost, currently in the process of moving more domains to my own vps
