I just shut down an old status.net server that no longer resolved. Lmk if you see weird behavior.

Great, could you possibly go a step further and add TLS? LetsEncrypt should do the job.

What are the typical hosting expenses on it?

I have it on a US$5/month server at Digital Ocean. Then another $20/year for .ca domain registration, more or less. Probably the biggest expense is the spam reports. Spammers use url shorteners to hide their domains. Ur1.ca uses a number of black hole services to detect this, but it can't catch them all. Spam detectors report the spam with a ur1.ca url in it to your hosting provider. They give you N hours to get rid of the shortened URL or they delete your account.
