Free Windows shared hosting service by First Server ! [Good Deals]

Japanese Web hosting company called "First Server" (Microsoft Gold Certified partner) started free windows hosting service for personal usage.

You cannot use them for commercial use but you would find out the service to be satisfactory such as;


  • 100 MB space for Web
  • 100 MB space for Database
  • Windows Server 2003 R2
  • SQL Server 2005
  • ASP.NET 2.0
  • M3 Blog pre-installed (MT like application on .NET Framework)
  • (Original domain name optional)

But please be careful that you CANNOT use email on this server. Please refer to functional list (Sorry in Japanese)


Can you imagine Windows Server and SQL server for FREE. I don't know other Windows hosting environment which is free. Most of the cheap hosting servers are on Linux / FreeBSD, it is pretty rare on Windows since they charge SPLA (Service Provider License Agreement) fee for First Server. I don't think Microsoft Japan is making any discount for First Server so I'm not sure how they manage to profit from this service, but anyway it's totally free for us.


I know it's more popular to use PHP or Ruby for Web scripting, but if you are trying to learn ASP.NET it may be a good choice to try and test your Windows application.

I love coding on Windows / .NET Framework since it's much easier to write managed code secure using Visual Studio. Expression Web and Expression studio may also help creating rich web application on Windows Server.

Microsoft has been behind on Web server area, but as seen in recent Yahoo! deal, they are serious on catching up on Web strategy. I'm sure they will be doing anything they can to gain share on internet web server, it will be good chance to get used to ASP.NET.


By the way, is a fantastic site to start learning "Internet Information Services" (IIS) and ASP.NET programming. IIS6.0 and IIS7.0 currently supports PHP too and its performance is on par with Apache/PHP.
