For most charities every last penny is crucial. While free web hosting might not sound like the most glamorous of propositions, every penny freed up by in kind donations allows organisations to stretch their budgets that much further. A pound not spent on an expense like web hosting, means a pound can be spent directly on a charity’s core activities.
In order to qualify for free charity hosting, the charity must be a registered UK charity and hold a current registered charity number issued by the UK charity commission. If you need further information on registering an existing charity please refer to the UK charity commission website.
We do this to create a minimum sensible threshold, to ensure every request is treated fairly and evenly. We're also UK based and focused, so we support only UK charities.
If you don't qualify, we still might be able to help in other ways. Our staff share the same ethos the company was founded with, and often support charities with the help of 34SP.com too.
34SP.com will supply registered charities with an entry level package on the appropriate account type. If you run WordPress we will provide you with a WordPress Hosting plan for example.
If you need more powerful hosting, you'll need to pay the difference between the base plan we offer for free and the extra resources you need. We also are not able to give away free third party items such as domain names, SSL certificates etc.
While certainly not mandatory, we ask that you help us promote this program. If you'd like to share news of your site's sponsored hosting via your website, email lists or social media accounts, we'd really appreciate it. We're proud to support as many wonderful charities as we do, and are always looking to help more. But again, this is by no means a requirement.
To take advantage of our free charity hosting program please drop us an email with your requirements to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can assist.
We currently host 415 websites free of charge. If you'd like to see a full list, please see our complete listing here.
