Free web hosting for use by students

Capture

Schools don’t usually have good facilities for development and hosting of web sites and supporting Apache servers, MySQL databases etc… For good reasons most work is developed within a closed environment, however by Year 13 and arguably earlier, students should become acquainted with hosting their work externally. Advantages as I see it are;

  1. Authentic
  2. Can show work to their parents/caregivers etc…
  3. Must deal with privacy and copyright issues

On the advice of others (you know who you are) I have tried http://www.freewebhost.co.nz/ and found it to be quite good. As such, unless I hear good reasons not to I will get my Year 13 students to create their own accounts (with parent authorization of course) and start hosting web sites as appropriate.
