I have a good experience with digitalocean when it comes to technical stuff, or computing stability, most of my apps hosted there are business related apps, has nothing to do with public opinion. but recently i decided to launch a lemmy instance that allows freedom of speech with very less restrictions, and i’m still thinking to put the service on digitalocean, but i dont know if digitalocean is good when it comes to freedom of speech, because i dont want to wake up at the morning and find that they blocked my account and deleted all my data because they didn`t like what my users are talking about.

Note: Less restrictions means (no pornography, child pornography, terrorist group and violence support, copyrighted materials trade).

If you’re afraid of the host taking down your instance, you could make it accessible only through a Onion Service on Tor. That way unless the provider directly snoops at the VPS files, they won’t know that you’re hosting that instance. And someone complaining about its content will only have the Onion Service hostname, and won’t be able to determine the actual location of the server unless a webpage from Lemmy on the server itself publishes the server’s public IP.

The drawback is that it makes it less approachable to newcomers, who might not know how to access it if they don’t know how to access Tor.
