8 Best Free Asp.Net Hosting | Try it


👤 Diwas Poudel    🕒 Jan 30 2022    📁 Fix    📜 0 comment

In general, asp.net websites are hosted on Windows servers, which are expensive, and service providers must purchase everything from Microsoft, such as Windows Server OS, SQL Server, and others. As a result of the high cost of hosting, there are only a few free asp.net hosting providers on the market.

Developers, Tester, and students usually use free asp.net or any hosting providers for the following purposes.

  • To Run their hobby project.
  • To just take their local host site to live.
  • For sharing the contents and projects to colleges, and to other businesses.
  • For testing the websites.
  • Before buying the services give a try for the free tier.

My advice is to host in the free asp.net tier only

  • if do not have money to host your project
  • if you don't take care of bandwidth and performance.
  • If you don't care about the project in the future.
  • If you are ok with downtime of hosting.

There are some asp.net hosting providers which provide their best services free of cost. Some of the free asp.net hosting providers are as follow.

1 Somee.com

Somee is a free hosting initiative that provides Windows hosting, Asp.net hosting, and MSSQL hosting.

Limitation of Somee  Asp.net Host Provider

  • Somee places a small advertisement at the bottom of the website to indicate that Somee hosts websites and applications.
  • Free SSL Certificates are expired every 3 months so you periodically renew certificates.
  • You cannot host every type of content especially adult content, hacking and illegal content, phishing websites, etc.
  • If the websites are not active for 30days then websites and databases get removed from Somee.
  • It has low bandwidth and storage.

So, if you host the site "techinfo," your full domain name will be techinfo.somee.com. So, in this case, techinfo is a subdomain of somee.
