Hosting for 501(c)(3) Companies

The information I would like to pass on to you today is a company in San Diego that has a program offering free web hosting for entities that are recognized as exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The name of the company is “Pixeled.” To participate in the program the nonprofit entity cannot be currently running an e-commerce/donation portal on their website and their website should be static pictures only. While these restrictions may prevent some entities from using the program, many other could benefit from the offering. To find out more about the program, you should check Pixeled’s website at www.pixeled.net. I have not personally used the program, but I have heard good things about it. I hope that some of you are able to use the program and find it helpful
