Sponsored web hosting for FIRST teams

Hello,

On behalf of Sevaa Group (http://www.sevaa.com) and team 1002, The Circuitrunners (http://www.circuitrunners.com), I am pleased to offer free web hosting to any FIRST team in need of it. Below are the steps to get your free hosting account.

1) Go to http://www.sevaa.com/order.php
2) Choose any plan; keep in mind that you will not be charged for overages.
3) Select 2checkout as the payment processor. If you can only pay (for the domain) via PayPal, please email promo@sevaa.com
4) When entering your name, also put your team number in parenthesis.
5) Enter "chiefdelphi" as the promo code


A couple things to note:
  • If you choose to have your domain registered, there will be a $9.95 charge. If you?re short on cash, the circuitrunners can give you a sub domain (i.e. http://myteam.circuitrunners.com) free of charge
  • If your site is extremely resource intensive (i.e. a busy forum), you will be asked to contribute in some way. Most sites won?t be very resource intensive.
  • Any linkage back to Sevaa (http://www.sevaa.com ) would be greatly appreciated. If you?d like to start a banner campaign, please let them know via http://helpdesk.sevaa.com. Any mention of the circuitrunners team would also greatly be appreciated.
  • Sevaa Group is an established hosting company (first licensed in 2001). They have servers in PA, and TX, for a speed test, please use http://soap.circuitrunners.com/uumap.tar.Z
  • If you are found to be hosting non-FIRST sites, your account will subject to termination.
  • All sites must adhere to the Sevaa TOS

If you have any questions, please post them here or submit a ticket in the Sevaa helpdesk located at http://helpdesk.sevaa.com



Thank you,
-Randy

Re: Sponsored web hosting for FIRST teams

wow, thanks alot for this service! i've been looking around for some free kind of hosting for a non-profit orginazation, but this is the best i've seen. I have one question tho. I signed up for the hosting, but i didnt buy the domain(i dont have a credit card) I am waiting for my advisor to buy the domain for the site, but i figured i would sign up now so i can start uploading files sooner. Is there any way I can but the domain at a later timer and have it linked to my account, or if you could sign me up for the domain and would just be in "debt"?

Thanks alot - tom

Hey Tom,

I pushed your account through to creation. When you are able to purchase the domain, you can submit payment via 2checkout.


Thanks,

Re: Sponsored web hosting for FIRST teams

Just a reminder that openFIRST and FSN *do* offer free PHP hosting with and without openFIRST software. Just visit http://www.firstscouting.org and get in touch with one of the staff members and they will setup a free account as well.

Enjoy.

Re: Sponsored web hosting for FIRST teams

Also, www.lehost.net is also gracious enough to offer free hosting/domains to the first 3 FIRST teams that reach him. You can either PM me and I can get you in touch, or email pierreb@lehost.net to get more information.

Re: Sponsored web hosting for FIRST teams

Team SPAM is using the Sevaa server and will be online shortly - thanks for the heads up Randy.

A couple questions:

In addition to spamrobotics.com, we have spamrobotics.net as a registered domain. Is it allowable to link it to the .com account on sevaa somehow? (it's not a separate website, just a different domain name).

Apparently all the uploads have to go through the administrator id - how do other teams handle multiple people making updates through php backend without giving out the administrator password to everyone?

As we start using up storage space, how should we ask for more? We want to be gracious guests but we hope to really build up the website and I'd like the students to have an idea of what's available and what we might expect to pay for additional resources so they can decide.

The help desk has been a great help while we're getting started. Thanks.

Re: Sponsored web hosting for FIRST teams

Hey Gary,

To get the domain pointer (spamrobotics.net) setup or to request more disk space, just submit a ticket in the helpdesk.

If you have different people in charge of different sections of web site, you can fool with permissions and setup sym links so that not everyone needs to use the same password. Hopefully though you'd trust anyone puting data on the site with the admin password.


Thanks,
-Randy

Re: Sponsored web hosting for FIRST teams

This is just the thing that we have been looking for! We were booted off of our server (they were probably doing some cleaning and deleted all our stuff...not like we were using their server with permission, anyway..) and I will have to talk to my team and my protege (since I became a mentor this year, I had to give up my title of "Webmaster") about this. If we can't get another server, I will recommend using this.

Re: Sponsored web hosting for FIRST teams

This is very gracious of the Sevaa group and will help many teams out. As far as I know, my team has been able to recover the scraps of our old website and repatched them together. All we need now is a server, and Sevaa might be our answer. Thank you very much.

Re: Sponsored web hosting for FIRST teams

Hello Majorchaoz,

I'm not really sure what you're trying to say. But to acquire a sponsored hosting account simply follow the instructions at the top of this page.


Thanks,
-Randy

Re: Sponsored web hosting for FIRST teams

lt744,

The hosting account itself is free. You only pay if you need Sevaa to register a domain for you. That registration fee registers the domain for 1 year, and renewals are the same price.
