I'm a happy customer of Schokokeks[1], a small Free Software
friendly hoster. From my own experience I can tell you that ownCloud,
Friendica, GNU Social and Known works really well. Basically all the
PHP stuff works without problems. I'm not sure about MediaGoblin
(Python) and (NodeJS). Especially for I could imagine
that it will be hard to find a webhoster which supports Apache and
NodeJS next to each other. Maybe the best thing is to have a small
(V)Server for this kind of apps.
