Fosshost to Sunset Tenant Services

At this time, Fosshost is deeply sorry to announce we are no longer able to continue offering our services.

Because of this, we strongly recommend all Fosshost tenants to backup their data immediately, and migrate elsewhere as soon as possible.

Where to Go

While Fosshost is sunsetting its hosting solutions, others in the community — including some of our former volunteers — who care deeply about free software sustainability have begun building alternative homes for free and open source projects who need the support.

The Radix Project

The Radix Project is committed to providing free-of-charge need-based hosting on request for your FLOSS/open source endeavors.

The Radix Project is one such initiative, founded in part by one of the original technical architects of Fosshost.
