The fosshost project is a not-for-profit organisation that exists to serve the hosting needs of the global open source community.
Founded in April 2020, fosshost started after it became apparent that there was a demand for sustainable and high quality hosting services. Even more, for free.
We began with one server and very quickly expanded particularly through the COVID-19 pandemic helping projects of all shapes and sizes. Today, we help more than fifty projects across ten nodes in two continents and six data centers in the USA, EU and UK.
These nodes are donated by our hosting sponsors and we 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). This is shipped with the following specification, but can be increased, upon request.
6 vCPU 8GB Memory 400GB Storage IPv4 / IPv6 connectivity Full Remote SSH Access
We support most operating systems including CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, ArchLinux, Fedora and FreeBSD. We support custom OS.
Other services we provide include web, database, communication, domain and storage hosting. You can apply for all of our services via the application form: https://fosshost.org/apply
