10 of the BEST Self-hosting Subreddits To Follow (In 2021)


Reddit is a wonderful place. It's full of like-minded people who share common interests. Rarely, a Subreddit does not exist.

I've been using Reddit for many years now, and I have curated a list of Subreddits that I believe cover all the countless issues I have encountered during my journey of self-hosting.

Here is what I believe is the best self-hosting Subreddits to join in 2021.

  • /r/selfhosted - The birthplace of this blog. Filled with likeminded people who love to share new open-source projects which are self-hostable. Also, a great place to troubleshoot and find tutorials. An incredibly helpful community.
  • /r/opensource - Like the above: Filled with likeminded people who share their open-source projects for you to discover.
  • /r/docker - There's a theme here! Redditors sharing their Docker projects, also great for asking for help and sharing tutorials.
  • /r/homelab - This Subreddit is for those who take self-hosting to the extreme. Running enterprise-grade hardware out of their spare bedrooms!
  • /r/proxmox - "A place to talk about Proxmox". Proxmox is free and open-source virtualisation software.
  • /r/linuxadmin - This Subreddit is mostly for debugging and resolving Linux related software and hardware issues. A great place to start for anyone wanting to build their first Linux machine
  • /r/nextcloud - Nextcloud is an open-source file hosting service. Think of Dropbox, but the data lives with you
  • /r/homeserver - HomeServer encompasses most of these Subreddits, you'll find a vast array of information from this Subreddit
  • /r/homenetworking - HomeNetworking is mostly linked to /r/homelab, HomeNetworking is a place to talk about network infrastructure in the home.
  • /r/sysadmin - Finally, sysadmin. Much like /r/linuxadmin - but not limited to Linux! Here you will find Windows, Linux and Mac related DevOps.

I'm always on the lookout for more Subreddits to flick through, let me know in the comments if there's any which I should follow!

I'll update the post and credit your suggestions!
