Free ASP.NET Hosting for UK Students

This offer has been suspended – please check back soon for update.

In the past when talking to students about ASP.NET one common criticism  is the prohibitive cost of ASP.NET hosting in the UK. I have been told numerous time by students that they can get Apache/PHP/MySQL hosting for next to nothing or even free but Windows based hosting is unaffordable.

Based on this feedback we have been working with Webfusion to offer ASP.NET hosting to all UK students for free!

The free hosting includes:

  • Windows Server 2008, IIS 7, 500 MB disk space
  • SQL Server 2005 database
  • Support for ASP.NET 2.0, .NET 3.0, classic ASP and PHP

To get your free account you need a unique code and a .ac.uk email address.

We will be distributing the codes directly via our faculty contacts, upcoming Inspiration Tour dates and best of all THROUGH THIS BLOG.

So if you're a student and would like to sign up but don't have a code please use the email link to the right or comment on this post to get one!
