Linux Handbook is an ethical web portal from the same team behind It’s FOSS, web’s favorite Linux and Open-Source portal.

While It’s FOSS focuses on Open Source, Linux news and desktop Linux, Linux Handbook focuses on the server side of Linux.

At Linux Handbook, you’ll learn Linux command line in detail along with tutorials on cloud-related technologies, DevOps tools, managing servers and more such tips and tricks.

Ethical web portal

Linux Handbook is an ethical web portal, and we take pride in doing things ethically.

We don't have tracking ads filling the web page everywhere. We have just one ad unit and that too is an ethical ad from Carbon ads. These ads don't put any cookie on your browser, and they don't track you.

We don't have Google Analytics on the website. We use Plausible, an open source, ethical analytics tool to measure the web traffic.

We don't use other Google services like Gmail, Drive or Google Suite. Our email is hosted on Tutanota, a privacy-focused secure email service. We host our own NextCloud instance.

We are using Vimeo to serve you video tutorials instead of YouTube. Our YouTube channel remains active but the embed videos on this website will be from Vimeo.

In short, Linux Handbook is a Google-free website.

Support an ethical independent publisher

It is not easy to continue publishing quality content without displaying advertisement. But we have decided to go against it.

We want to give you a clean reading and premium learning experience without tracking ads lurking everywhere. And we are committed to this idea.

You can support us in this goal by becoming a member for just $50 per year (it's less than what you would spend on a few meals in a week).

As a Pro member, you get e-Books created by our team (4 of them so far) and video courses (coming soon).

If you don't want to commit to a monthly subscription, you may also make a one-time donation. Every bit helps.
