Giving Something Back

At Hipposerve we want to give something back. We want to use some of our profits to support those charities  who are doing amazing projects around the country. We want to be able to help those charities spread their message, into order to help them raise funds and promote projects.

All the Tools You Need

Our free plan contains everything our basic paid plan includes, including a FREE SSL certificate for privacy and a FREE litespeed web server for speed. We also throw in a Cloudflare CDN with Railgun for FREE too. On top of that, we will help you with the set up of all these features.

Free

Is it Really Free?

All aspects of the hosting is free to get you started. This plan supports around 90,000 visits a month, more than enough for most small charities. If your charity flourishes then you may wish to move to a larger package to meet your increased traffic needs. We can offer huge discounts on these. 

If you are a larger charity, or more established with a large number of visitors then we can also offer good discounts on our Hippo Business Pro  plans, to suit your higher bandwidth needs.

Free Hosting

Eligibility

It is important to us that we only provide this free hosting opportunity to genuine charities. In all cases you must be a registered UK charity and listed on the UK Charity Commisions Website.

As part of the registration process you will be asked to provide your full registered charity name and registration number.

Our main criteria for eligibility are as follows:

  1. The work and projects completed by the charity are of interest to us.
  2. The charity is genuine in its mission to help others and does not have sinister intent, such as extreme political leanings, or religious teachings.
  3. Payment of staff working for the charity is not excessive and money raised is not spent frivolously.
  4. There is documented evidence of the work that the charity does and you are happy to share this with us from time to time, so we can use it in our blog to a) promote the scheme and b) to promote your charity.

At present we are unable to offer free websites to Schools, PTA groups, regional branches or large charities or Scout and Guide Movement websites. We may still be able to offer a discount for some of these groups.

 

Promote Your Charity Here!

Once you have your site working, we can also offer you a bit of free promotion. In return for a back link on your site, we can publish your logo, and links to your blog posts about the great work that you are doing!

Register Now!

In return for this free service we ask that:

1. You register your domain name with us; or if you have an existing domain name, transfer it to us. You would have to pay for this with who ever you buy the name from, so it would be really useful to help us.

2. You promote us with a small backlink in the footer of your website saying Hosting Provided FREE by Hipposerve. We will be able to provide you with the code if necessary.

3. Promote this service by giving us a shout out on social media (use the buttons on the left hand side of this site), mention us in your blog and give us a review here.

How long will this offer last?

We will continue your hosting free of charge as long as you keep your domain name registered with us and you continue to meet the eligibility criteria. 

Will I get the usual Hipposerve support?

Of course. You will be able to contact us on the phone from 8am – 8pm, on our live chat from 8am until 12am, and 24/7 via our online ticket service.

I already have a site, can I move it to you?

Yes, we will provide a free migration service, from you existing host to Hipposerve.

Do I have to transfer my domain names to you?

Yes, this is a requirement for the free hosting. We can assist you with the transfer.

How long does it take to set up an account?

Unlike our paid plans, these are set up manually as we need to check that a charity is genuine. Once we are satisfied that you qualify we can usually set up within a few hours. Transferring a site takes a bit longer, but can usually be completed within 72 hours.

Can I promote this service?

Please do! We want to be able to help as many charities as possible. You can help my mentioning us in a blog post or giving us a shout out on social media!

Are all charities accepted?

We reserve the right to refuse a charity without reason for the free charity website programme. However there is nothing stopping someone who is refused, paying for one of our cheaper hosting plans.
