Web hosting is one of the necessary things which many of us need if we are a web developer or blogger or just trying/ experimenting with your application over the web.
Web hosting is expensive. And it’s not always possible to buy one if we are just experimenting things out.
So here in this post, I’m telling you about a way with which you can have one year of web hosting absolutely free of cost. This free hosting of 1 year is provided by Amazon web services(AWS), which is the leading cloud computing service providing company.
Below are features of the free hosting plan which we are discussing:
- Bandwidth transfer up to 15GB per month
- 5GB bucket storage for a year
- Database services support – RDS
- 100% uptime
- Load balancers and auto scalers for excessive loads
- Awesome technical support – 24*7
