Not sure if it is wat you are looking for, but maybe Gandi.net is worth considering.

They support creative commons, the EFF  and some open source projects.


Best regards

Dear Fabio,

Thanks very much for your email. Firstly, apologies for the delayed reply - a lot of people have been away over the Christmas break.

I have circulated your query to our discussion and help lists. Perhaps some people there may have good suggestions for the most open way to register a domain name or may be able to recommend specific hosting providers.

In the meantime, thanks for getting in touch and Happy New Year!

Kind regards,

first congrats for the great work.
I visited the OKCon in Berlin 2011, and loved it.

I have a question:
What is in your opinion the most "open" way to get a domain name
registered, meaning which registrars offer options which are most akin
our "open" way of thinking?

Are there also any hosting providers which can be recommended?

Thanks a lot
