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 many open source projects.

To make this a success, we operate nodes which are either donated by our hosting sponsors or funded through donations. We have a strong team of Fosshost Volunteers who manage the infrastructure on behalf of the projects we help. Those open source projects eligible for our services, typically apply for a virtual private server (VPS).


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.
