What we do

We're on a mission to empower and support every free and open source software project. To go further, together. Our work never stops.

Fosshost C.I.C. is a non-profit UK-registered Community Interest Company (CIC), Limited by Guarantee, without share capital. Launched in April 2020 by founder and present CEO, Thomas Markey to provide open-source projects and initiatives access to no-cost distributed cloud computing services.

Today, we help provide world-class hosting services to hundreds of open source projects.

To make this a success, we operate several nodes which are usually donated by our hosting sponsors, and the Fosshost Volunteers manage the infrastructure donated to us, on behalf of the projects we help. Those open source projects eligible for our services, typically apply for a virtual private server (VPS). We support most operating systems including CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, ArchLinux and FreeBSD and custom OS.

Other services we provide include web, email, hosted video and voice conferencing and domain / DNS hosting services. You can apply for all of our services via the application form, or read more about the services we offer here.

Sponsors

All of our infrastructure and networking is kindly donated and provided to the project for free. We could simply not operate without these contributions to the project and fosshost.org is extremely grateful for the kind generosity of all our supporters.
We believe in providing maximum transparency with our services and we are very proud to list those who have helped Fosshost. In no particular order.
