The basic Linux web hosting plan of Dotster is free and instant setup, with which you can get start your new website immediately. You can register a new domain freely with the hosting plan for the life of the plan using the coupon code FREEDOM15. The plan supports MySQL database, PHP, Perl, Python and almost hot technologies in Linux web hosting. And it also integrates tons of applications for you to easily start your website, blog, photogallery, forums and community. But this basic Linux web hosting plan has some limitation compared to the advanced web hosting plan of Dotster, like only 10GB website disk space, 300GB monly data transfer, only 1 hosting domain, 100 email accounts and 5 FTP accounts.

The Dotster Basic Linux web hosting solution is priced at $3.75/mo, which is available for 1-year, 2-year and 3-year subscription. To make a contribution to environmental conservation, this company claims to offer eco-friendly hosting, featuring 150% renewal energy offset for all servers.
