Lunarpages, a La Habra, Calif.-based provider of web hosting services and support, is now offering free web hosting to all K-12 public schools in the United States, effective immediately. “Educating our youth is extremely important, and donating web space to schools is a small contribution that could potentially make a big impact on students, teachers, and parents across the country,” said Ron Riddle, CEO and co-founder of Lunarpages. “We welcome any district administrator, school principal, or classroom teacher to participate in this unique program.” Schools and districts can take advantage of the program to create web sites that serve a variety of purposes, including: (1) increasing visibility for the school within its own community and beyond; (2) facilitating communication between teachers and parents; (3) sharing information between schools within a district or classrooms within a school; (4) providing valuable information about daily schedules and events; and (5) serving as a bulletin board for homework assignments and class projects. As part of the program, Lunarpages will provide 1,000 megabytes of storage, unlimited eMail addresses, 40 gigabytes of data transfer, and unlimited phone and eMail support for each new account. There is no restriction on the use of the account opened in conjunction with this program, provided it is opened by a school official and is used for educational purposes. Private schools, colleges, churches, day care centers, and schools outside the United States are not eligible to participate.
