SiteGround Goes Back to School... To Help Students

SiteGround Students Program

During the last year few university professors, who use SiteGround web hosting for their personal projects, approached us with a similar issue: they were not happy with the generic hosting solutions provided by their academic institutions and they preferred to reveal the secrets of the web to their students using SiteGround hosting instead. Of course the main bummer was the fact that the standard hosting fees were not very suitable for most of the students. So we started to work on a special Student hosting program to help the future stars of the internet get started easily without extra budget required. Today we are happy to announce the latest and improved version of our Student Web Hosting Program.

How did it all get started?

At first we started by working with a select group of faculty members, providing free hosting for students enrolled in their courses. In just a few months we had close to 700 free accounts created. The initial success made us think that we could really expand the program and make it available to any student, no matter whether their professor/university is working with us. That is why we now launched an improved version of the program that allows every student to use our hosting at a special highly-discounted price.

You are a professor? Get free hosting for your students!

We are still actively looking for partnerships with educators who can enroll their courses and get free hosting for their students. No matter whether you are teaching a course of 3 or 300, online or in a physical classroom, we would be happy to take away from you the hassle of finding good hosting for your students, so you can focus on teaching them how to excel in the digital world. Starting is really easy and quick – just give us some information about your course and we will get back to you with all details.

You are a student? Get hosting at a special price!

The new feature of the program is that students do not have to rely on a teacher anymore to get an account. They can sign up for our StartUp hosting plan at a special very low price with their .edu email. A free subdomain of the type [your name]* is also included in this special student’s edition of our hosting plan.

Lastly, if you are a member or an officer of a student club, publication, or a Greek-letter organization you can get free hosting for your organization by helping us spread the word about our new program. Get in touch with us and tell us a little bit about your organization.

* In October 2015 has replaced the domain for Students websites

Amazing hosting services is a new entry into a long list of interests I have - gadgets, social media, marketing, history, wine, soccer, and college football (Go Blue!) are just a few among those. And I love to blog and tweet about all of them!

There are multiple educational domains and we have added a lot of them, however, the one you used was not in the list. We've added it and now you can register with .edu too :)

The student hosting program has been discontinued, hence why no new submissions are accepted.
