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 I use Nextcloud for everything (contacts, calendar, files, you name it!)
@mprv I found this article very helpful: https://piware.de/post/2018-05-01-android-degoogle/
@mprv Using posteo.de for quite some time now, they offer calendar & contacts sync which (at the moment ) I don't want to host myself.
@mprv Here's a few web-links that might be useful : https://degooglisons-internet.org/en/

I'm using ProtonMail, what do you suggest?
@mprv protonmail/vpn is a great service, I would say , stay where you are unless you also want to selfhost email.. (totally doable in 2019)
@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.
@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
@noorul open a ticket from the dashboard and this should be fixed in no time..
@noorul you'll finally be able to stop that, I know how it is, I still have email at DM too, this year I'm stopping all my "shared-hosting" usage and will move personally and at work to self-hosted (work is already the case) make sure to setup SPF, DKIM & DMARC in your dns zone to have perfect emails (mail-terster is your friend)
@noorul no idea, I would need to know more about the inbox to be able to infer on why it happened..are you talking about one of the shared hosting email inbox ?
Yeah I do. Nextcloud is pretty awesome and having this, host your own mail and then the services you need. Check out kabi.tk, that's my project on selfhosted services for the family. It's not that hard to implement and maintain.
@mprv I've been doing this in varying degrees for about 8 years. I use self-hosted Nextcloud for files, contacts and calendar with Plex for serving media from there (I did use Emby for a while). I've never found a decent Google Docs replacement, and I've decided that it's easier to pay for an email account. I use Gandi as they include email with there domain, and it has a good feature set.
Yes, I definitely need to divide up the setup in small steps. I'll probably post a road map on my personal blog.
I'm in the same situation and have been using NextCloud as replacement for Google Drive, Contacts and Calender. It can sync seamlessly with my Android using an app called Davx5. If you're using iOS I think it has native support for the protocols used by NextCloud.
Instead of the Google play store. Try out F-Droid. I still use the play store due to Widget theming and custom icons installed in my phone system. I uninstalled all major Google based apps "Google, Google news, Play movies, Play music, Messenger. Heck I even disabled the assistant app. I still have Google keep because I take alot of notes, "Scrittor" is a good alternative to that. Go Facebook on my phone as well.
I already use f-Droid, thank you for the suggestion. Scrittor looks promising, I'll give it a try.
@mprv nextcloud is nice.
@transflux Just finished configuring a self hosted instance on a raspberry pi.
Can confirm, very nice.
@mprv depends on the usage of the data also
