About

It’s with great sadness that we announce the coming end of LISHost. Things will be winding down early in 2020 with the hope that everyone will be relocated to the new host of their choice by April 2020.

LISHost is a Linux Web Server devoted to the library world. While our costs are very low, the service level we provide is high. You'll find more information about LISHost, and the people who keep things running, on our FAQ Page.

You're not just an account or a user at LISHost, you're part of a community. All LISHost users get almost unlimited space and bandwidth. We handle DNS, account set up, and almost anything else you might need.
