This is a FOSS listing for service hosting. Staying on this list doesn't mean that a given software is recommended or audited in the spirit of the Franklin Street Statement on Freedom and Network Services.

What to look for when chosing:

  1. Portability: how easy is to export and import data into a service?
  2. Maintenance: how easy is to install, upgrade, migrate and restore the service?
  3. Security: how secure the service look like? How upstream handles security? What's the service security track record?
  4. Stability: does the system is stable or is full of bugs?
  5. Maturity: does the architecture and data model of the service changes very often? Are there a community and many developers?

Sometimes is better not run a service than to do it poorly.
