Avec expands third sector hosting base

Avec has recently added to its growing range of third sector hosting clients by taking over the hosting business of sister social enterprise, Rise Computers, based in Southampton.

The new clients include leading not-for-profit organisations in the south of England such as the Social Enterprise Foundation, So Fair, Sunlight Development Trust, the Kingsley Centre and the Hampshire Community and Voluntary Service Network.

When Rise found through staff changes that it could no longer serve these clients, they turned to Avec, as we are not only a social economy company, but we share the same commitment to open source technologies for both hosting and content-managed website development.

Avec now hosts nearly 400 domains for its clients, the vast majority not-for-profit organisations.

We welcome our new clients aboard and look forward to working with them, as with all our clients, to help them to promote their valuable work through their website and other new media.
