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:).
