@KillianKemps I think this is a great idea. But I wonder if rather than focusing on the self/individualthere might be in between models where a group of people get together to cooperatively create a web hosting space. I'm thinking of sites like (but perhaps on a smaller scale than) archiveofourown.org/ or wikipedia.org It's not just a technical problem, but a social one too?
@edsu Yeah I think I understand what you mean. It is more reliable and easy to manage its web services with a group.
I agree with you, it would be more sustainable and we should encourage this kind of initiatives.
For example @Framasoft has created the CHATONS movement, where small groups of people offer services.
Here the website of CHATONS (I'm not sure if the English translation works well) https://chatons.org/en
