Some history

TuxFamily was created in 1999 by Julien Ducros. At first, TuxFamily was just to host some friends' projects. But after a while, TuxFamily became a free hosting platform to host any free software related project. In December 2001, TuxFamily became an official association loi 1901 organization to have a legal status to protect the platform and its administrators but also to be able to accept donations to buy new hardware. This radical change in TuxFamily, helped it to provide better quality service, host more projects, and become bigger and bigger. TuxFamily became a well-known organization in the French open source scene.

By January 2004, TuxFamily was an important actor in the free software development in France. In those few years, more than 6000 persons joined the TuxFamily planet to present more than a thousand open source projects. The main goal of TuxFamily was to provide a point of presence on the Internet for free projects. Several services were offered to hosted projects : Web sites, DNS, CVS, SVN, IRC, Free online games...

In January 2004, some random crackers managed to destroy the hosting platform. Several administrators decided to stop the platform and to quit TuxFamily. However others, with fresh recruits, wanted to start a brand new hosting platform, starting from scratch and developing a completely new VHFFS panel. For a full year, the team worked hard and in january 2005, exactly one year after the fatal crash, TuxFamily was back online.

Since January 2005, TuxFamily has been continuously up and running and is always trying to provide even more services to hosted projects and their members.
