Lunarpages, a provider of web hosting services and support, today announced it will offer free web hosting to all K-12 public schools in the U.S., effective immediately.
“Educating our youth is extremely important and donating web space to schools is a small contribution that could potentially make a big impact on students, teachers and parents across the country,” said Ron Riddle, CEO and co-founder of Lunarpages. “We welcome any district administrator, school principal or classroom teacher to participate in this unique program.”
Schools and districts can take advantage of this program to create websites that serve a variety of purposes, including:
* Increasing visibility for the school within its own community and beyond
* Facilitating communication between teachers and parents
* Sharing information between schools within a district or classrooms within a school
* Providing valuable information about daily schedules and events
* Serving as a bulletin board for homework assignments and class projects
As part of the program, Lunarpages will provide 1000 MB storage, unlimited email addresses, 40 GB data transfer, and unlimited phone and email support for each new account.
There is no restriction on the use of the account opened in conjunction with this program, provided it is opened by a school official and is used for educational purposes. Private schools, colleges, churches, day cares and schools outside of the United States are not eligible to participate.
For more information or to sign up for the program, school officials and teachers should contact Lunarpages by calling 1-877-LUNARPAGES (586-2772).
