eLINIA offers free charity hosting

UK managed service provider eLINIA annoucned on Monday it has launched a new offering that provides a free Web hosting service for charities.

eLINIA has previously offered an ad-hoc free hosting service to charities including The Millennium Stadium Charitable Trust who would normally resort to one of the shared hosting providers to deliver a limited managed service to its Web infrastructure. The company is now formalizing the service with a standardized package.

"A lot of charities use low end shared hosting providers as a way of keeping infrastructure costs low, but in practice the level of management is low or non-existent and the uptime and security can also be a concern," says James Carnie, technical architect at eLINIA.

"We're used to working with organisations where downtime is simply not an option and charities that successfully apply for free hosting with us will have exactly the same level of service. We want to support charitable organizations by providing them with first class robust hosting services."

The free hosting service is also carbon-neutral, and will initially be rolled out to local charities in Wales. The company says it plans to extend the offer to third-sector organizations throughout the UK later this year.

Headquartered in Cardiff, UK, eLINIA says it provides businesses with world-class highly secure IT services, including hosting and managed services, application infrastructure services, application development services, outsourcing, business continuity services and database management.
