YunoHost offers a wide range of services on a proven Debian platform that you can host yourself.

YunoHost [1] is a Linux distribution that offers a basic server platform with single sign-on for hosting web, mail, XMMS, and several dozen other services. According to the project website, YunoHost's goal is to provide "…a server operating system aimed at making self-hosting accessible to everyone."

YunoHost comes with the nginx web server, MariaDB, mail transfer agent Postfix, and the IMAP server Dovecot, including the Rspamd spam filter. The Metronome IM XMPP server, OpenLDAP, Dnsmasq, and the SSOwat transparent authentication system for single sign-on are also available, as is Let's Encrypt for creating SSL certificates.

YunoHost also provides a community repository of validated helper scripts to install other services and applications. The repository, which is hosted on GitHub, provides customized versions of the applications preconfigured to integrate into YunoHost's single sign-on environment.
