Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

Hosting providers

Recommendations for that age-old question of how to host a website once you have an idea. Please provide a justification for your recommendation - spam will be ruthlessly pruned.

Some of these recommendations were originally taken from a mailing list thread back in 2011. Feel free to add a more recent recommendation.


  • Github - free, and works well with git, of course - Mark


  • Google App Engine (GAE) - OK for infrequently changing sites that you don't want to worry about - Mark




  • Bitfolk - "they provide the server for, their support is ace and they don't enrage me even a little bit" -Alexjs
  • Bytemark - Renski, Nat, Alexjs
  • linode - "I've been using them for a year, no complaints" srimech
  • uk2/ - used for about a year, very good service during that time, occasional bouts of latency but generally worked very well - win2k3 and linux vm's used, all fine.
  • - a friend's organisation, servers based in .nl, support over IRC and email. Excellent value, brilliant uptime, very little latency. - Tajasel
  • Idaq - Yiannis
  • Digital Ocean - very nice service, cheap, APIs Mark
  • Hetzner - popular for VMs or web
  • RoseHosting - fully-managed Linux VPS with free 24/7 support. They have git hosting too


  • Colocker - Run by Hackspace member 'bigcw' aka Chris who is happy to help out fellow members, be flexible on pricing, etc
