    Web Hosting Community Rallies around New Orleans - Free Hosting, Registration

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    Intermedia.NET stepped up to help any organization whose email systems were disrupted by Katrina. It is offering immediate assistance to bring the affected parties online again, plus free hosting for September and October. Set up fees will be waived, and there will be no further obligation after the free period. Intermedia.NET is also offering a free fax service. Michael Choupak, president and CEO of Intermedia.NET, is keenly aware of the need: “In addition to human relief efforts, it is important that businesses can continue to operate. Being able to communicate electronically is essential for many companies’ day to day operations.”

    TS-Host, a web hosting company located in Atlanta, aims a similar offer squarely at not-for-profit organizations. These groups, often educational and governmental organizations, can receive free hosting from the company for three months. “For profit” businesses can receive the same services for half of what they would normally pay TS-Host. Dr. Nino Doijashvili, CEO of Tulip Systems, stated that “We purchased 50 additional servers, because we want to help in whatever way we can.”

    1PlanHost is waiving all the hosting fees for its customers affected by Hurricane Katrina. The company will also donate 10 percent of its revenue from all new web hosting account sales and renewals during the month of September 2005 to the hurricane relief effort. Furthermore, it is encouraging companies with customers in the affected areas to do the same. “It would be unrealistic to expect our customers in New Orleans and the gulf coast area to have to worry about their website hosting accounts expiring,” observed Darrell Williams, CEO of WebWeavers, which owns 1PlanHost. “They are struggling to feed themselves and their families – we’re not going to add additional stress.”

    Rackspace Managed Hosting, located in San Antonio, Texas, is hosting a number of missing persons’ sites and relief portals for free.

    BulkRegister stated it would renew all domains set to expire through September 16, as well as those already expired, that are managed by members based in affected areas. To qualify for this auto-renewal, domains must have expired or be scheduled to expire by September 16, 2005, and the member’s address must be in a zip code deemed closed to mail service by the United States Postal Service as of August 31, 2005.

    PowWeb is engaging in a two-part relief effort. First, it is donating $7,000 to the American Red Cross immediately. Second, it will provide web hosting services to any organization that requires them for its work in the hurricane relief efforts. While the company does not explicitly state that it is offering its services for free, it does say that “Due to the high cost of networking infrastructure, as well as the direct damage caused by the hurricane, PowWeb knows that not all good causes can afford the type of service needed in this time of crisis. Any organization needing help should contact relief@powweb.com for details.”
