What is Web Hosting for Students?
As the number of computer science classes and online education opportunities are on the rise, students now often require a web hosting service to create their projects. Whether you’re learning how to code, want to communicate with students online, or need to build your professional online presence, you would need a server to upload your project files to so that they are publicly accessible worldwide.
If you are a student, the chances are that you most likely cannot afford the price for purchasing a Premium Hosting Plan. To help you get started, we are offering not just an affordable hosting plan, but one that is FREE to use during the first year!
As long as you are enrolled in an educational program, you will be able to use our student hosting plan cost-free during the first year. You must be able to provide documentation to support enrollment in the university.
The best thing about the Web Hosting for Students plan is that even though this service is cost-free during the first year, you will still receive the same features and service quality that come with our premium hosting plans.
To help you build your CV website as quickly as possible, our hosting plans include an automatic 1-click installer. This tool will enable you to install a rich variety of popular CMS website platforms such as Wordpress, which is a great platform to create your CV.
Create your portfolio website using our Zacky Website Builder! You’ll still be able to easily create a website, with a visual Drag & Drop content editor, and without using any code. You’ll get to choose from a large selection of available templates to create your website in minutes.
This solution is suitable for you if you need something more straightforward than the famous CMS platforms.
Most student web projects cover portfolio, class, project, blogging, hobby, education, and so on. We impose no limits on the types of projects you wish to use our services for.
