Mailman 3 hosting
On this page you can find a list of features which provide added value in case you choose Mailman3.com instead of self-hosting.
Why not self-hosted?
One would expect from the open-source software that it should be fine to self-host. It was true for Mailman version 2 indeed. However, Mailman 3 has been developed as a complex modern three-tier web application including full-fledged frontend, backend, and relational database components.
While the average technical level of Mailman 3 administrators has grown significantly in the last few years, so has the effort and complexity of the application maintenance.
When self-host, one should be an expert and senior practitioner in quite diverse topics, i.e.:
Additionally, Mailman 3 administrator should have developer experience and be able to use Mailman 3 Gitlab repository for updates, since the Mailman 3 release cycle is not well defined and Linux distribution packages are outdated, non-existent, or not production-ready.
This really differs from what we were used to in Mailman maintenance for version 2. And this is why our SAAS offerings exist in the first place.
