    Open Source

    GeekISP has embraced Open Source software in a variety of forms for years. We believe in the quality, security, and philosophy that is associated with Free and Open Source technology.

    All of our servers run a BSD OS. OpenBSD is an industry leader in security, quality, and reliability. Furthermore, we believe it takes money to build free software, so we are committed to donating to help BSD systems continue to exist. Our webservers have recently been migrated to FreeBSD, to support our current architecture.

    In addition to our underlying operating system, we are proud to use the Apache web server - arguably the most famous and most utilized Open project. Our databases run both MySQL and PostgreSQL and our mail servers run Qmail and Courier-IMAP. These shining examples of Open Source success are simply examples - all of our infrastructure is free, down to the smallest pieces. All of these pieces are Free and Open, allowing us to provide a quality service at a reasonable cost.

    A world without Open Software would be like a world without libraries. We believe in sharing information, learning, quality, and reliability - that is why we are so tied to Open Source software. Furthermore, as a group of programmers, we have learned incredible amounts through our ability to download, test, and experiment with new software. That aspect of learning with Open Source software has changed our lives for the better.
