We should choose a good host for the instance.

First option for ethics/privacy (green/Iceland has best free speech laws) is https://1984hosting.com/product/vps/ but they are too costly.

Second option would be https://www.gandi.net/hosting/ but still bit costly. We run poddery.com with them and they are pretty good.

Third option is https://www.scaleway.com/ which offer very cheap hosting from France. I think we can start with a starter VPS for now as their other vps products are yet to launch. We can scale as we grow.

I'm OK with GitLab Inc. paying for an X-Large at Gandi.

@sytsesidsijbrandij let me see if we can use our existing gandi.net account. (asking poddery.com maintainers for their opinion https://www.loomio.org/d/PKB2F9vk/proposal/598mfgqn) You can buy credits for a specific gandi.net handle. So it will be better if you buy credits to our account once we decide which account to use.

Cool, we'll buy the credits when the handle is clear.

@sytsesidsijbrandij credits are added to our handle, thanks! Created the server and now setting up the DNS.

@manukrishnantv @balasankarchelamat KnightSwarm.com does not allow any more edits to the zones, so I'm switching fosscommunity.in to 1984hosting.com Free DNS service.

@sytsesidsijbrandij we are live at https://git.fosscommunity.in running the gitlab package on debian jessie with a few manual steps (mail setup and some dependencies, which I hope to automate). Lets' test it among ourselves before we announce widely. We'll also add a link to gitlab.com as our hosting sponsor.
