Shared Web Hosting

Schools receive two free web servers (one for development use and one for production).

Web hosting for other groups (on shared servers) is free up to 10 GB. Beyond 10 GB the fee breakdown is as follows (based on storage use):  

Less than 10 GB Free
Less than 50 GB $10 per month
Less than 100 GB $20 per month
Less than 200 GB $40 per month

All shared web servers run on Microsoft IIS. These rates exist on shared web servers to prevent sites from adversely affecting other web sites hosted on that server. Sites with a large storage footprint use more resources in general (and significantly lengthen the backup and restore processes). We don’t throttle other resources (CPU, bandwidth) but we do monitor them to ensure that our shared servers are performing adequately. On (very) rare occurrences sites may use enough resources that we will require they have their own virtual server.
