Hassle-free hosting

We host, maintain, and gently improve your blog for you. You can focus on your work, and we'll keep the lights on.

Human support

We want to help you spend less time fussing with blogs. You can always reach us anywhere you are.

Stability & trust

We keep major design changes to a minimum, and since 2015 have built a reliable platform that will be here for years to come.


Plans include only one blog (instead of the normal 3 or 10 for Casual and Pro, respectively), to be used only for a non-commercial open source project. If you want more blogs, please let us know when contacting us. Please consider creating a separate paid account for commercial projects.

Apply for discount

Email us with your project name, URL, and license, your role in the project, number of developers, and any additional information you'd like to include. We'll respond soon, including a coupon code if your project qualifies for the discount.
