What is The Public Community?

  • The Public Community is a service company that helps creators host their own social network.
  • For a one-time fee, we will work together to create an online community that matches your vision.
  • Unlike Tribe or Facebook Groups, here you have full ownership over your community and its data.

How does it work?

  • Start by filling out this form. Once completed, we will schedule a 1-on-1 call to learn about your business, how you interact with your audience, and what you're looking to get form your community.
  • We will set up the community on your servers (e.g. AWS, Hetzner, DigitalOcean), and configure it to your needs.
  • Finally, we'll schedule another 1-on-1 call to walk you through the platform so you can manage it confidently yourself.

How is it better than the competition?

  • Complete ownership: Your community is hosted on your servers, and you don't need to pay anyone to keep it.
  • Powerful customization: Your community comes with dozens of free extensions that let you customize its appearance and functionality in a just a few click.
  • Fast, dedicated support: Before setting up your community, we schedule a 1-on-1 call to learn about how you interact with your audience so that we can provide the right experience for them.

How much does it cost?

  • We charge a one-time fee of $300, which includes the setting up and configuring the community to your needs.
  • Zero monthly service costs.
  • You only pay for a server, which costs an average of $5/month (Hetzner is our favorite).

Do I need to know how to code?

  • No! You can easily customize your community using dozens of no-code extensions, and customize its appearance and functionality to match your needs.
  • We also set up the infrastructure so you won't need to worry about server maintenance and performance. Your community remains secure, blazing fast, and is backed up on a daily basis.
  • And if you still encounter issues, we're only one message away.

Is there ongoing support?

  • Yes! You can reach us via chat or email free. We're usually pretty quick to reply.
  • If you'd like us to take a deeper look (e.g. Hop on a call and fix issues for you) we charge $80/hour to do.
