Free Cloud Hosting Now Available For All UK Charities

Posted Thursday 21st Feb, 2013 by


A question we often get asked is "How is your website hosting so cheap?” Some customers struggle to understand how we continuously offer super fast, reliable web hosting with 24/7 UK customer support for just £14.99 a year. In fact, in the past we've actually failed to gain new clients because they deemed our web hosting packages as suspiciously "too good a value". There’s not a lot I can do about that (I'm not going to increase our prices), but I can top it; from today we're offering FREE Cloud Web Hosting to all UK registered charities.

Thanks to continuous growth, economies of scale and an increase in automated services we're able to maintain our premium service, customer support and competitive pricing whilst offering a helping hand to worthy causes. We understand that every penny counts and we believe that offering free Lite, Standard and Pro Cloud Hosting to registered UK charities will help relieve funding that is better spent elsewhere; supporting their good cause.

If you’re a registered UK charity and wish to take advantage of our FREE UK Cloud Web Hosting, simply place your order on our site, select ‘Bank Transfer’ as your payment method, and put your charity number in the order notes. Alternatively, if your web hosting requirements exceed that provided by our free hosting packages, we are able to offer a substantial discount on our range of Virtual and Dedicated Servers.

If you’re a non registered, non-profit organisation that operates for the good of others (churches, youth clubs, student societies etc) we’re also able to offer you a substantial discount off your hosting - with savings up to 50% available. If you think you are eligible, please send an email to sales@tsohost.com (with details of your organisation and cause) and a member of our team will get back to you.

Hi Lee,

Thanks for getting in touch. I’m going to pass this information over to our support team who will email you directly regading this.


I am a (uk) teacher who is looking for affordable / free wordpress hosting.  I would initially need 20 accounts, but this could rise to several hundred accounts over the forthcoming year (500 perhaps).  The accounts would be very limited and would only include basic text and images.  I do however want the ability to install plugins (otherwise I would use the free service at wordpress.com)

Could you please advise on how affordable 20 accounts would be for me and potentially how much several hundred would ultimately cost.

Hope this helps!

Hi, does the free hosting offer for charities include churches and if so does it include email?

Hi is the the free hosting offer still available please . My. Charity is Cancer Research uk registration number is 1089464.
Will we need to get a domain name first.

I would like to accept your kind offer of standard web hosting for a registered charity web site.  Please let me know: would the site then carry advertising?  I look forward to hearing from you.  My thanks, DAP.

@ Pauline, Ok lets get you up and running asap. I will email you the correct details now :)

I was the last time I tried. I haven’ tried since due to the holidays.

Hi Pauline, Apologies for the delay. Are you still experiencing issues when setting up your account?

I was sent the information to set up a hosting account for my client - a charity (273180), however it does not appear to be ‘free’. Could you please advise.


Dear Sir/Madam
I hope you can help I am writing on behalf of the Ashdon Primary School PTA.  We are a registered charity ( number: 1028671 ).

The PTA raises money via various events for the school. Each year the PTA hold a 10K and 3K fun run. This year we would like to offer online registration via a website.

We would require a basic template based service for the site, race registration and payment and at a cost as low as possible as our budget is limited and we wish to put as much money back into the school as possible.

We have arranged a charity account with PayPal and would like to to accept run registration fees though this account. I would be grateful if you could tell me if your company offers any hosting packages that would suite our needs.

  Tracy Balcombe, Ashdon Primary School PTA !0K and Fun Run Committee

Thank’s very much for hosting our sites which are work in progress(we are learning as we go) it’s’ great that you do this we are a local branch with limited resources this help us a lot , ticket support is great though I have not had to use it very much and I really like your control panel which I find easy to use, anyway on to the reason for my post I have checked through our treasures handbook very carefully and due to being a charity we are not allowed to link back your site or display your logo, but we can acknowledge your support(if you wish us to or you are aloud to do so I know it’s complicated when it. come to charities) with a small thank you is there any particular guidelines as to how you would like us to word it or to layout you would like us to follow, or something like this.     
                        We would like to thank Tsohost for their technical support and hosting off our websites.

Even if you don’t need us to say anything what you are doing benefits a lot of people I am sure everyone appreciate it.               


I have just registered for your standard hosting as the charity Freshwater lifeboat. At present the site is hosted on a cpanel host and we use Joomla as the basis for the site I hope this is compatible to your hosting system

Hi Andy - It’s our pleasure! I have just sent you an email with details on how to setup your free charity hosting account. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help :)

Hi guys, thanks for offering this service. Really kind of you. Could you please create a pro account for us as we’ll be hosting www.tigerawareness.co.uk which we donated recently. Registered charity: 1117234.

Thanks again.

Hi, does your free web hosting service include a branch of the UK Scouts?

I’m interested in running the open-source WordPress <http://wordpress.org> blogging software will a free hosting package support these minimum requirements?

◾PHP 5.2.4 or greater
◾MySQL 5.0 or greater
◾The mod_rewrite Apache module
