Microsoft’s WebsiteSpark Program

Microsoft announced a new program which is designed for independent web developers and web development companies that build web applications and web sites on behalf of others. This program offers software licence that we can use for three years at no cost.

  • 2 licenses of Expression Web 3
  • 4 processor licenses of Windows Web Server 2008 R2

  • DotNetPanel control panel (enabling easy remote/hosted management of your servers)

The only two requirements to join the program are:

  • Your company builds web sites and web application on behalf of others.
  • Your company currently has less than 10 employees.
