here in UK you have to get a business grade connection and pay a small amount extra for it. But with a lot of UK home ISP connections they actively discourage running servers from there, some ISPs even forbid it in conditions of service (not sure how much its enforced), but dynamic IPs traffic shaping and sometimes locked down routers make it difficult anyway...
In the Philippines, almost everyone is behind CGNAT, so that locks out almost everyone from hosting servers from their homes.
this fedi instance i'm on is selfhosted, but i had to use a reverse ssh proxy to do that, not the kind of thing we want if we need more people to selfhost.
IPv6 should be the key to provide again a fix ip to every router.
Way back we've used services like dyndns to compensate the missing fix ip.
@jwildeboer Das hatten eir schon bei 1200/75 moniert und deswegen eigene symmetrische Netze aufgebaut. Aber die Masse der Mir-alles-egal-Sauger hat leider (mit) dazu geführt, dass sich die „order & pay“-Leitung für Endverbraucher durchgesetzt hat.
