Student Web Hosting

At Goodwill Hosting, we offer two unique web hosting packages for students. We have a FREE web hosting package and our usual standard package available, the latter at a 50% discount.

Why? It costs enough already to be a student, so it’s our way of helping out if you need hosting for your project. Our free package should be more than sufficient for school, college and university projects, however if you want that little something extra we, we offer our unlimited plan for 50% of the usual cost – no contracts and you can still choose to pay yearly or monthly.

Security as Standard

In this day and age, security if everything. That’s why SSL certificates are now standard with all hosting packages, along with daily and on-demand cPGuard Anti-Virus scanning.

Money Back Guarantee

We’re so confident of our product and our services that if you’re not happy in your first 30 days, all you need to do it drop us a message for a no-quibble refund.

Customer Support

Got a problem, or simply need some help and advice? Drop us a message and we’ll get back to you ASAP. Our support is available 24/7 via the ticketing system in your client area.

Website Builder

Save time and money on web design with Site Pro site builder, which is included as standard in all our hosting packages. This is a quick way to build a website without the need for any coding knowledge. You can have a professional looking website in literally minutes at not extra cost!

Virus Protection

Unlike many providers, we actually give you access to the virus protection interface within cPanel. This means you can run your own scans on top of the daily scans we run ourselves. Don’t worry though, it’s an extremely light weight application and will have no performance affect on your site!
