We're glad to help out! Our infrastructure already serving a number of
projects loosely related with Sugar.
What are the technical requirements for hosting your website? We can
offer a dedicated virtual machine running any version of Ubuntu or
Debian. System administration will be entirely your responsibility,
including security updates and backups.
Two notes of warning:
- our primary systems are colocated at the Free Software Foundation. We
agreed that we won't use their IPs to run, distribute or advertise
- over the next 2-3 months, the FSF might have to relocate all their
servers elsewhere. This will cause downtime for us as well.
