    Bizspark and hosting

    Hi,
    Sorry if this doesn't belong in this forum. I'm thinking of joining the Bizspark program and, from what I gather, I can get discounts on hosting. Now, I'm currently looking for hosting, but I don't want to sign a 12 month contract if Bizspark provides me with competitive hosting packages. Has anyone registered with Bizspark and hosted with one of the partners (Peer 1, Rackspace etc..)? What sort of discount should one expect on the hosting front? If it's negligible, or reduced but still expensive, then I may reconsider.
    Thanks

    I'm not familiar with the "Bizspark" program however I can tell you that there are promotions/coupons out there for just about every provider if you look hard enough. Some of the promos are *very* nice upwards of 40~60% off where as others are smaller (5~15%) but recurring.

    Good luck.

    Hi MikeDVB,
    I've tried looking and, at the moment, I can only find a few small discounts. However, I don't think it can last a year or so
    I can't really find Peer1 prices, but I was wondering if they have significant deals via Bizspark.
    Thanks

    It varies from provider to provider and what promotions they are or are not running at the time.

    Have you tried looking at the offer forum? You might find a good deal there that you might be interested of availing.

    If the search within offers section do not help you at all I would recommend you leave a free quote using find a host option here

    Hi,
    Thanks for the replies. Since I can't get Bizspark quotes from these providers, without signing up to Bizspark, I was hoping someone else may have a ball park figure. I'd like to sign up to Bizspark once development on the site is completed so that I can get the most out of it. I was just looking at hosting options now so that I get an idea of the budget.
    ps: Has anyone used csnewmedia.co.uk for hosting?
    Thanks
