S4 is a young small company but the team behind it has a lot of experience in web design, development and server management. We are passionate about sustainability, ethics, open source software, net neutrality and internet freedom.

We spent more than a year, and a lot of thought, work, testing and development before launching to create web hosting on our own terms. We've spent another year since then happily offering the same hosting service to other people who need a web presence that works but also care about a sustainable, fast, and affordable internet.
