FREE ASP.NET hosting until January 2010

Marc Schweigert from the Federal Developer team shares a cool-sounding offer:

Verio is offering a sweet little free hosting deal to developers and designers to promote Microsoft-based hosting for products and technologies like Expression, Visual Studio, and Silverlight.  The Plan includes:

  • .NET Framework 3.0 (I am told 3.5 will be made available eventually)
  • SQL Server Express
  • ASP.NET 2.0 (Including ASP.NET AJAX 1.0)
  • Full Trust
  • Shared AppPool
  • 100 MB disk space
  • Free through January 2010

So what do you have to do to get it?  Just call 800-932-7483.  No credit card is required.  The offer is not available online.  You need to call the toll free number.

I just signed up myself!  The process was pretty quick and painless.  I haven't actually tried using it yet.  That's next:).

    We want to host my website. We are a group of students and few of them also working. We are in india.

    Can we host a ASP.NET 2.0 website with SQL express 2005 as backend.

    It’s theoretically possible, but it depends on your web host. Or if you’re hosting it yourself, that’s easier, and certainly possible.

    I’m not aware of anything that would prevent you from using SQL Server 2005 Express to store your data.

    No idea…you’d need to contact Verio to find out about that…I’m just sharing the news.
