Hi Paola,

we do offer hosting, as a service of my department (in case of interest we can discuss it in private).
While I know of some VB/PMKI provides providing for specific circles (e.g. Publication Office of the EU commission to all DGs of the EC) and of companies (e.g. Sparna, Ontotext, just to mention two) offering various services including VB hosting, I don’t know of any generic free providers for VB

Kind Regards,


P.S: you are right about the definition of web-based. However, as for all web-based services, they are such because there’s a provider and, in that case, the client does not need any software (not even a client app, except for the web browser) to be installed. The difference then is that VB3 is also available for free to anyone willing to install it in their own premises (or to use it for commercial uses, as a provider for instance)

Thank you all
Simon and Armando
I need a hosted web based resources, ie, I dont intend to maintainmy own server

(I could get one but I really want to use web based  hosted services)

Simon, can you suggest a service provider?

Armando, the description says it is web based, but thats not my definition of web based
(needs to be deployed first, do you have suggestions for providers who may offer
Maria, I visited the UPM resource today and I saw that to add
a vocabulary you can do so by entering a URL ( +suggest) , which I will do
after I have a URL

Please keep suggestions coming, in the sense that vocabularies are still
important for new knowledge domain, and since my laptop and many websites are impermanent
I really would like to store resources somewhere they are more likely to live longer than myself and my laptop

the other thing would be to create a list on wiki of course

Thank you
solid TBL latest gig right? (someone else pointed to solid in another reply but I haven't followed up yet, apols)
would be good to have an opportunity to start working with it  (only hear of solid so far)

Matthias, to save me reading the specs
I need the resources to be deployed online via url and possibly have an xml output
(create the resource via html form and output as csv and/or xml)
please let me know if you know who d be  the best provider for it
also I dont mind paying a (small, reasonable) fee if its solid  :-)

Hi Paola,

another alternative for an easy deployment is to use a SOLID POD (Personal Online Datastore). There are some providers which give you a POD for free [1]. The nice things you get out of the box are:

- Fine-grained access control via WebID.

- You can update resources via PATCH request [2].

- The solid servers implement content negotiation, e.g. try <code>$> curl -L -H "Accept: application/ld+json" "https://mattes-white.inrupt.net/public/open/test.ttl"</code> to get a JSON-LD version of a Turtle-rendered-resource from my POD.

- As long as you choose a reliable provider you don't have to worry about the deployment yourself.

Hi Paolo –

We run a system locally based on Epimorphics open-source Linked Data Registry stack.
I don’t think we can offer a general purpose service, but you might be able to deploy your own.

See http://registry.it.csiro.au/def and https://github.com/UKGovLD/registry-core

It does per-item updates, with a transparent versioning trace.

Subject: vocabulary repos?


I am still compiling lists of terms and would like to share them as public heritage

Do people on this list have recommendations somewhere easy yet nicely structured for where to upload or curate online vocabularies?

should be updatable one term at a time, rendered as downloadable xml , access level and privileges and other features welcome

please advise
