Who we are

About Us

We are an independent internet company based in Nottingham, UK. We specialise in Managed IT Services using Free and Open Source software.

Free Software

Redstar works with FOSS (Free & Open Source Software) applications because it fits with our ethical principles.

Commercial software privatises the process of creating software instead of working with transparency in a sharing community. Commercial software can also be more vulnerable to hidden security flaws than open source software.

Free Speech

We are committed to the practice and defence of Free Speech and self expression.

We are very supportive of Free Software and Free Speech, however this does not include hate speech or speech designed to incite acts of violence.

As well as the UK, we can also offer hosting based in Iceland for organisations that need stronger Free Speech protections

Green Energy

We try to balance hardware and energy resources in order to deliver services in the greenest way we can.

When sourcing new hardware we try to use the most ethical sources.

We have gone to great lengths to make sure all our hosting is powered by renewables.
