Take a look at the kind of projects and work we are doing in your sector and beyond...
The founders and current directors of Netuxo Ltd come from grassroots, nonviolent (but often very direct) activism, working on a range of military-nuclear-climate-gender related issues. In fact, Netuxo began simply because a conscientious objector and a feminist antimilitarist decided to work together to create a computer network and build a website for Peace News. With no budget, but some skills and a willingness to DIY, a seed was sown and it was not long before we started getting asked to help others do the same. Fast forward a little and, in June 2003, Netuxo was officially born. We've been working to support like-minded groups, organisations and individuals ever since.
Netuxo has provided hosting for a range of projects I've been involved in over the years. Knowing our hosting needs are provided by people from within the movement gives us peace of mind.
We serve our communities and are proud to do so. We want the peaceful, just and tolerant world you do - and we know these are not simply ideas but realities we need to live. Through choice and use of technologies and by trying, in our paid work, to maintain the same values we hold in the rest of our lives, we hope to encourage and support movement and practical change towards these goals.
At Netuxo we are lucky to work with some great organisations in these sectors and count world-class research institutions, think-tanks and grassroots training providers amongst our clients. Our clients want to educate, to provide the hard evidence to back up campaign claims and to train activists, networks and community groups to work together more effectively.
We are delighted to provide hosting and development services in support of these endeavours and luckily we also love relational data! Yes, really we do :) So if you have thousands of items of content, files, users and complex relationships that need to be preserved/changed/migrated/re-organised we can almost certainly help you. This is where the "plumbing" bit really comes into its own. Drop us a line...
Throughout this project Netuxo has been a professional, flexible and dedicated partner. Our focus on research and data means our site will always be very content heavy - and we wanted to keep most of that information when moving to a new CMS. So a key concern when choosing Drupal was to find the best way to migrate several thousand items from 2 elderly Plone-based sites into Drupal 8, while preserving structure, categorisation, user and file relationships and URLs where possible. Netuxo solved this in a tremendous manner; spending numerous hours preparing the move and then working patiently with our team to manage all migration issues that arose along the way.
We provide hosting, development and support services to this sector and count Lawrence and Wishart, FemaleArts, Housmans Bookshop, AZTheatre, PastPixels and the Left Book Club amongst our clients. With more than a decade of experience of working with clients from these fields, we have been proud to work with companies such as Zed Books, individual authors such as Cynthia Cockburn and, more recently, arts and music projects such as LlittleWeed Music.

With Netuxo's help we have been able to implement a number of new features on our website which have had a direct positive impact on our sales revenue. The team at Netuxo are efficient and collaborative, and have a customer-oriented focus which means our needs and goals are at the centre of what they do and how they work
Netuxo was founded as a workers co-op back in 2003. (see About page for a bit more about our history). Since then we have worked with more than 100 different groups and organisations, including a number of other co-ops and social enterprises.
We are proud to be a worker co-operative, and Netuxo is a member of Co-operatives UK, the British member organisation of Cooperatives Europe.
We demonstrate a practical implementation for our Principle Six obligation (co-operation amongst co-operatives) by offering special discounts to other registered co-ops and social enterprises.
Our special offers for any co-operative which is a member of one of the European member organisations of Cooperatives Europe or of the International Co-operative Alliance are:
- One year's free website hosting for all new Drupal website development jobs valued at more than £1,000 ex VAT;
- Plus one year's free implementation of Drupal security upgrades for all new Drupal development jobs valued at more than £5,000 ex VAT;
A 10-20% discount may be available for other services on application.
Netuxo is also a member of an alternative economic network in Spain called REAS (Red de Redes de Economía Alternativa y Solidaria) and we extend these discounts to other REAS members (in the state of Spain).

I love the fact that they work with other socially conscious companies, feels like the right people for us to be with.
We care for our planet, the environment, and other living beings (of whatever species). We are concerned about the un-sustainability of our present level of production and consumption. As a company we make the positive choice to host all our servers in a datacentre in Germany which is fully powered by renewable energy and try to run our business in a low-impact way and with a DIY ethos. Empowered people make better choices - for themselves and the planet.
We're really happy with our new site. It looks much more engaging than our old site and it is much easier to update. Thanks Netuxo!
We like clients who share this view, be that local veg box schemes, climate change campaigns, or environmental research institutions. Over the years we worked with regional environmental networks, climate activist networks and local environmental projects, and continue to host several such websites.
As queer identified people, we know where you're coming from. Don't want to explain again and again why providing only "male" and "female" as sex options on a form isn't enough? Worried about your web developer judging you or the content of your website, but happily taking your money? If you are a queer community group, campaign organisation or business, why not make sure your web development and hosting is provided by other queers?
The new site looks great and is easy to use. I really enjoyed working with Ippy and Andreas at Netuxo. They communicated clearly, kept on schedule, and explained things well. I also felt good about working with an organisation that shares similar values and ethics. I would certainly work with them again in the future.
We have been providing hosting and development services for some queer or diversity oriented groups, putting our professional skills at the service of queer causes. You could be next.
Its not all altruistic. Like the vast majority of people, we have to earn a wage from our labour and our clients enable us to pay ourselves a very modest wage. On the whole, our commercial clients pay a little bit more towards our wages than our non-profits do. We think that's fair and that's why we operate a sliding scale of rates.
We work for commercial clients, so long as what you are doing is in keeping with our values. We are very happy to count bakers, carpenters and psychologists and amongst our "for-profit" clients. Find out more.
We genuinely can’t recommend Netuxo highly enough. They somehow manage to provide what few businesses do; a balance of highly professional yet totally personable, comprehensible support. They’ve helped us out in a range of ways; from developing new features and providing vital emergency support to our Drupal-based sites, to invaluable web development of our Wordpress site. We particularly appreciate their positive approach, clear communication and quick response time, despite our many and varied requests! A huge thank you to Ippy and the team for the continued support.
