Free hosting for startups

When I started MyWikis, I had little money. In fact, the company was in debt until a year later, and even then we only managed to barely break even. What was our biggest cost? Our web hosting.

Now that we are financially solvent and profitable, we're able to give back to the community. If you have a startup that requires relatively few resources (just web hosting, some scripts, etc.), we'd be glad to help you host by giving you some space on our server.

We're giving your startup at least one year of absolutely, 100% free - $0 hosting. This includes unlimited storage and bandwidth. We hope that this provides your organization a "cushion". This will help you reduce costs and earn more money. As a startup owner, we feel your time should be spent looking forwards to profit, not trying to swim out of the red. And hey, if you need the "cushion" for more than one year, that's fine too, because we want your startup to be as prepared as possible.

(Disclaimer mumbo jumbo: There are no guarantees, don't abuse the resources, and please keep your content appropriate/compliant with our Terms of Service but remember, it's free! Please purchase your domain separately on a website that allows you to change your domain's nameserver. We can also offer a subdomain if you prefer that.) 

We will not be hosting any websites related to wikis via this method (no wiki hosts). This is because:
  1. If you want to create a wiki host, we want you to use MyWikis Reseller (
  2. If you want to create a wiki, we want you to use MyWikis, of course! (

The hosting we offer does not have a "build-your-own-site" tool (although we could install a CMS/content management system for you), but you can deploy HTML, PHP, Python, Ruby, Perl, etc. pages. We are not helping you create your website, but instead providing a place for you to host your creation.

To apply, please send an email to with your startup's info (name, summary of what you're doing) and we'll get back to you when we can, usually within 24 hours.
