Urbit is a modern operating system and social network. On the network, you have a unique identity that remains yours forever.

Combining the OS and the ID, Urbit can become your permanent online home, sheltering you from the spying eyes of mega corporations and giving you a new kind of space to express yourself.

Urbit has been in the works since 2002; it is still a bit rough around the edges, but it is definitely ready for you to move in. It already hosts numerous vibrant groups, ingenious thinkers, and bold explorers.

To get on Urbit, you need an Urbit ID, and you need a way of hosting your personal instance of the Urbit OS. We take care of both.

How it Works

You have a few hosting options to choose from:

planet

Planet Hosting

A planet is a permanent citizen in the Urbit universe. You can join or create groups, publish content, and change your planet as you see fit.

$12/month

Billed every month

comet

Comet Hosting

A comet is a more temporary Urbit identity. It is suitable if you just want to check Urbit out. Later, you can always get a planet, although you will not be able to take all your data with you.

$6/month

Billed every month

star

Star Hosting

Stars are important infrastructure nodes on the Urbit network; they can also issue new planets. If you want to get a star or host one with us, please contact us.

Cancellation

If you are not satisfied with our services or want to do something else with your Urbit, you can always cancel and download your Urbit and S3 data without any friction. Your Urbit ID also remains yours forever, and you can download the keys. Then you can either run the Urbit yourself or host it somewhere else.
