YunoHost is a Debian GNU/Linux based distribution packaged with free software that automates the installation of a personal web server[1]. The purpose of YunoHost is to allow users to easily host their own web services by enabling a simple point-and-click web interface for installing various web apps. Currently supported apps include an email server with webmail interface, a WordPress website, an instant messaging server, a news aggregator, a file sharing server, and a seedbox, among others. The name YunoHost is a play on words on the internet meme "Y U NO". Yunohost (along with Internet Cube) are part of present NLnet Foundation's funded projects.[2]
