Open Source Plan Policy
Our Open Source plan has the same features and limits as our Pro plan, with the addition of free unlimited team members.
A qualifying “open source license” is defined as one of the following:
- Any license listed on the Open Source Initiative approved license list.
- A Creative Commons license that includes “attribution” or places the work in the public domain.
The Open Source plan is intended to enable projects working on open-source-licensed software to host websites containing information directly related to the community around that software. Some examples of this content are landing pages, documentation, and change histories, in addition to more ephemeral content such as blogs by the development team, issue trackers, and similar auxiliary information. This is intended for projects that welcome open collaboration and reuse of their software and potentially their associated content.
Some good examples of projects with the type of site we are targeting are:
In exchange for this free service, we request that you place a link to our service on your main page. We have premade badges for your convenience, or you may create your own link.
As a free offering, the Open Source plan is subject to Section 6 (“Free Usage Tier”) of the Netlify Self-Serve Subscription Agreement. In the event that we discover sites that do not appear to be about open-source-licensed software and/or do not have a link to Netlify, we will inform the site owner of the observed mismatch. If no response is received, we will downgrade the plan after providing notice.
If you feel your project meets the terms of this policy, please contact Support to request a plan upgrade.
