## What is Mastodon?
## Why IndieHosters?
We at IndieHosters believe that **Free, Libre and Open Source Software** for everyone is a way to decentralize the web. Free Libre Open Source Software uses transparent codes and is a common good. Everything we offer here is copy left and we would be happy to inspire new independent hosters to facilitate usage of FLOSS for non-techie users. Whenever you decide to host on your own server, we help you to migrate your data. The more the merrier! Until then you can benefit the experience of the IndieHosters team, who is dedicated to make usage of Free Open Source Software easier and to install it for you. Indie Hosters keeps its business model down to earth by offering products it has tested for its own use. Thats how it can guarantee a fair pricing model. For the installation of Free Open Source Software that you can not find in our shop, we are happy to discuss. If we consider it useful for ourselves, we can split the developing costs.
We at IndieHosters believe that the combination of [**Free, Libre and Open Source Software**](https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free/Libre_Open_Source_Software) and a [Fair Web Service](http://fairwebservices.org/) is the only way to [decentralize](https://degooglisons-internet.org/) and democratize the web. It is important to bring back diversity to a monopolistic market of internet giants such as GAFAM (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft), who lock in the data of their users and tie them to their services.
For everyone who believes in Democracy, Freedom of Speech and Privacy, IndieHosters is the right place for your data. We are dedicated to help you build up a professional and independent web identity. With IndieHosters you get a voice that does not belong to google, facebook or dropbox. Our freedom bundles provide you with a fair alternative to google drive or dropbox. For a facebook alternative we install mastodon or rocketchat for you. For your independent website chose between wordpress, known or static. Become a true indie ninja, by documenting your experience in the forum and help other users to get independent. IndieHosters is part of the FLOSS community, every contribution is for the common good. It's our web, not googles, not facebooks. Start creating, we help you and host you.
With InideHosters you [stay independent](https://indieweb.org/Principles) and have the same control over your data as when [self-hosting](https://degooglisons-internet.org/). In the meantime you benefit from professional expertise and share costs and ressources of hosting Free, Libre Open Source Software. The end goal of IndieHosters is maximum sustainability for your data, environment and democratization of Free and Libre Open Source Software/ Internet. IndieHosters keeps its' business model down to earth by offering products it has tested and handpicked for its own use. Therefore the non-techie user can rely on the smooth and bug-free usage of the services hosted by IndieHosters and a fair pricing model. We eat our own dogfood and adhere to all [IndieWeb principles](https://indieweb.org/Principles)!
Dependent on the usefulness of additional Free and Libre Open Source Software for our general user base, the developing cost for the installation can be negotiated directly with our team. There is always a solution to expand your private digital online identity. Perhaps in the long run/ In the long run you can even consider becoming your own independent Hoster and handpicking Free, Libre and Open Source Software that you find more useful.
Finally, for everyone who believes in Democracy, Freedom of Speech and Privacy, IndieHosters is the right place for your data. We are dedicated to help you build up a professional and independent web identity.
