Finally have Mastodon instance on my personal domain! Huge thanks to @hugo from @mastohost for his patience and fast response time, even on Sunday!

Signed-up for Firebase free hosting but it can't easily redirect the .well-known/host-meta URL either so I've hosted it as a static file. Though the documentation wasn't very clear it was possible. I've tried to clarify the content of the file for others:
