As every year, we would like to collect for paying our data center. We currently host two rack servers to run the project with almost all services coming from there; the website, wiki, forums, mail, VoIP, IM, build services, and so on….

We got a great offer from our hosting provider but of course cannot expect them to pay the whole bill. Therefore we would like to reach out to our brilliant community to help us making IPFire available
for everyone.


Hosting a whole distribution is a much more advanced task than hosting a smaller project which offers only one tarball for download. Thus, Sourceforge or similar platforms are not an option for us. They would limit the project in the way we like it to be.

We would also not be able to have our nice build infrastructure which makes the IPFire developers even more productive and is going to play a big role in the future.

Altogether, funding this part of the IPFire infrastructure would help us a lot. We still have to run the rest of the build systems and backup infrastructure. So any help is appreciated.
