Free Software

We all like something free! Ezyweb offers hosting packages that include pre-installed Open Source Software* where the software license allows freedom of use. This also means there is no cost for the software, you only pay for the hosting service (and any add-on services). GNU say: "Free software" means software that respects users' freedom and community. Roughly, it means that the users have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. Thus, "free software" is a matter of liberty, not price. 


Software developers update open source software packages from time to time and it is the customer's responsibility to update their software should they wish. It will be vital to apply any updates that include security fixes. If your software is found to be outdated and missing a security fix then your site maybe at risk of being taken offline, please see our Terms & Conditions. It is therefore strongly recommended to keep your software updated, please contact us if you need assistance with updates.


*Note: Wordpress and Microweber are both Open Source packages, the exception is SitePro which is proprietary closed source.
