If we're adverting our shops here then...
webarchitects.coop are a workers cooperative providing hosting for
all sorts of people, including activist organisations.
We have a cooperative model that allow customers to become members also,
so they can become involved in decision making and development
Hosting is based in the UK or Iceland, depending on costs, and legal
issues you think you may face.
All hosting is based powered by "goodenergy" in the UK from renewables or
hydrothermal in Iceland.
