Verio is offering a sweet little free hosting deal to developers and designers to promote Microsoft-based hosting for products and technologies like Expression, Visual Studio, and Silverlight.  The Plan includes:

  • .NET Framework 3.0 (I am told 3.5 will be made available eventually)
  • SQL Server Express
  • ASP.NET 2.0 (Including ASP.NET AJAX 1.0)
  • Full Trust
  • Shared AppPool
  • 100 MB disk space
  • Free through January 2010

So what do you have to do to get it?  Just call 800-932-7483.  No credit card is required.  The offer is not available online.  You need to call the toll free number.

I just signed up myself!  The process was pretty quick and painless.  I haven't actually tried using it yet.  That's next:).
