Self-hosting might not mean what you think it means

So tell me this, what did you think it meant?

Oh like, if you asked me out of the blue what “self-hosting” meant, I’d probably say something along the lines of “hosting my own webserver/site” or “hosting wordpress on my own domain, instead of using the hosted version of wordpress, aka wordpress.com”.

But essentially, a co-worker and I were trying to think of the term that means something like a compiler that compiles itself, and we thought we knew the word, but it turns out the phrase was “self-hosting” which is not the word we were expecting.
