Creating your own instance

I looked through the list of ‹ instances ›. When you first join Mobilizon you are supposed to ‹ choose an instance ›. Are there any ‹ instances › in Canada? If not, can we start our own instance and how is that done? Thank you. I’m a little lost here.

Hi,

There was an instance made for Quebec-people at some point but it had server trouble and closed: https://fedi.quebec

An English-speaking instance I can recommend is https://events.nixnet.services.

Setting-up an instance and managing it requires system administrator skills, so it’s not possible for anyone to do this.
