# Why IndieHosters?
We at IndieHosters believe that the combination of **[Free, Libre and Open Source Software](https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free/Libre_Open_Source_Software)** and a [Fair Web Service](http://fairwebservices.org/) is the only way to [decentralize](https://degooglisons-internet.org/) and democratize the web. It is important to bring back diversity to a monopolistic market, dominated by Internet giants such as GAFAM (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple and Microsoft). They manage to control the market because they lock in the data of their users and thus tie them to their services. We at IndieHosters believe that the only way to guarantee a free and thriving web is to facilitate and ease data migration.

To get you started, our [freedom bundles](https://indie.host/) provide you with a fair alternative to google drive or dropbox. For a facebook alternative we install [Mastodon](/shop/mastodon/) or [Rocketchat](/shop/rocketchat/) for you. For your independent website chose between [Wordpress, Known](/shop/) or a [static website](https://forum.indie.host/t/easily-host-a-static-site/75). As with the bundles, you can either get a shared instance or a private one for each product in the shop.
For further Free, Libre and Open Source collaboration tools, [IndieConsulting](https://blog.indie.host/2017/indieconsulting) helps you to pick and install the best ones. Pricing depends on the usefulness for our general user base and can be negotiated. Another solution in this case can be actual self-hosting and distribution of your own service to others. The more hosters the merrier!
Finally, if you believe in democracy, freedom of Speech and privacy, IndieHosters is the right place for your data and your digital identity. With IndieHosters everything you say and publish belongs to you and the [sustainability of your data](https://degooglisons-internet.org/) is not at the mercy of Internet giants such as GAFAM. Your data and meta data is only collected for the purpose of internal, anonymous statistics and not sold, exploited or used to exercise manipulative influence over you and others.
