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
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

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

Your post title is bad for marketing. Make it shorter and more catchy. Something like FREE Hosting for your Open Source project.
