Open source email, mailing lists, blogs, hosting, streaming, websites, and more...
XtreamLab provides Internet services running on purely Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) to a range of organisations in the UK with particular emphasis on community groups, co-operatives, social projects and anarchists (in the true political sense).
We can provide the following:
- Email (IMAP and POP with support SSL and TLS for using with a email client app, such as Thunderbird or your iPhone, Blackberry or Android device). We also offer webmail using either the beautifully simple SquirrelMail or the elegantly excellent Roundcube.
- Mailing lists and discussion groups using the popular GNU Mailman mailing list manager.
- Web site hosting and blogs using Apache running Perl, PHP, Python and CMS systems such as Drupal, CiviCRM and Wordpress.
- Streaming and podcasting for Internet radio and TV using Icecast.
We provide these services for no or low cost if you are an individual requiring a service for non-commercial purposes, low cost if you are a co-operative or funded organisation, and a low commercial rate if you require your site for commercial purposes or you are a larger NGO.
Should you require any of our services, please get in touch with us by emailing us.
We don't have a social contract per se, but we'll host you if we like you, and we reserve the right not to provide you with services if we don't feel we can, or we don't agree with what it is that you do. No offence, it's just the way it is.
Who is behind XtreamLab?
XtreamLab was previously a non-constituted project to provide services principally run by Marcus Valentine and Mike Harris. We have recently incorporated under the name XtreamLab Internet Services Limited (company number 08535039) to manage these services.
Wasn't XtreamLab something else?
In a previous incarnation, XtreamLab focussed on providing Internet streaming services and received funding from the (now defunct) South-West Regional Development Agency for two ground-breaking events, VENN 2007 and D.R.O.I.D. Prior to this XtreamLab was also involved in streaming for events in London, Bristol and Barcelona. This site is not directly linked to the old versions of XtreamLab, but some of our experience is drawn from them; if you're looking for streaming, we can still do it. Find out what it was all about at this web page. You can also Peruse the microsite for D.R.O.I.D: Reality isn't everything and peruse our archive of videos at Blip.TV
