You can create your own Mastodon server even without technical knowledge 🐘
There are companies that provide Managed Hosting, where you pay a monthly fee and they do all the technical stuff including hosting, installation and updates.
You own and run the server, they do the tech stuff behind the scenes.
The best managed hosting companies for Mastodon are probably https://masto.host and https://federation.spacebear.ee
It's not just Mastodon either, there are lots of Fediverse platforms and other online services available through managed hosting. Try visiting https://growyourown.services for more options (or follow them at @homegrown).

Also https://ossrox.org offers Mastodon instances on request. Hosted on German servers.
They have experience through their privately offered instance (social.sp-codes.de), which runs great since the beginning and is always up to date.

Mastodon ist ein soziales Netzwerk. Es basiert auf offenen Web-Protokollen und freier, quelloffener Software. Es ist dezentral (so wie E-Mail!).
