Some (cheap) alternatives on hosting your own Mastodon server that I could think of:
1. If you have good internet, not moving around, and have your own RPi: deploy on local. If your ISP didn't provide you with public IP, create a hidden service and go buy a dirt-cheap VPS ($2/year) for solely tor2ip purpose

You also need a domain on top of it. You can go with either a cheap TLD or a more expensive one.
