WestHost Offers Free Plan for College Students

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – College students in the U.S. state of Utah have a great opportunity to get web hosting, free of charge. It’s thanks to a new web plan put forward by web hosting provider WestHost.

The shared hosting plans last one year and are available to students with .edu email addresses. With the move, the company hopes to prepare the students who are prospective business leaders for “global competition” in the future.

Discussing the matter in a press release, WestHost President of U.S. Operations Jeff Hunsaker stated, “Forbes Magazine has just ranked Utah the best state for Business and Careers in 2011,” said Jeff Hunsaker.”

“We wanted to give something back to the educational community which will be the future engine for SMB growth in Utah and nationally,” Hunsaker continued.

Meanwhile, specific features WestHost is letting students take advantage of include creating e-commerce sites, resume posting, and WordPress.

In addition to the offering, the web hosting provider is set to host workshops beginning early next year for students. Among its services, WestHost offers web hosting, cloud hosting, domain registration, dedicated servers, and reseller. For more information on WestHost, visit: http://www.westhost.com/
