Free Website Hosting

Considering a web site for your diocese, parish or organisation?

The following is an overview of the Internet services that Church of Ireland Hosting Services is able to offer:

  • Free Webspace
    We can offer you the option either a Windows 2008 or a Linux Server with Apache 2.2.  If you are considering WordPress or Joomla, the Linux Server is ideal.
  • A Domain Name
    You can have a domain name linked into the widely adopted Church of Ireland/Anglican network (e.g.,
    We are the only people able to offer this naming convention, but it is restricted to “official” Church of Ireland bodies (e.g. Church of Ireland parishes or organisations) as recognised by the Internet Committee of the Central Communications Board.
  • E–mail forwarding facilities
    Provision of e–mail addresses using the naming convention
    This address is configured to forward e–mail to an existing account e.g.,
  • FTP Facilities
    You will be issued with full FTP facilities so that you can upload the files for your website.
  • A free 150MB MySQL Database
    A MySQL database is essential if you wish to use a Content Management System (such as Joomla) or WordPress.  150MB is adequate for most parishes or organisations.  A 300Mb database is available, but will incur a cost.
  • There are many other options available, some of which may incur a cost – including:
    • SSL space for secure sites,
    • full stats package allowing you to track visitors to your site – where they came from and which areas/pages of your site they’re looking at,
    • URL security for password protected areas,
    • e–mail aliasing,
    • domain registration.
  • What will it cost ?
    To encourage parishes and organisations to publish their own web sites, there is currently NO CHARGE for web site hosting using the domain structure.

Please contact us for details on our other offerings or if you have any queries, for terms and conditions (including our bandwidth usage policy), or to order your account.

See here for the terms and conditions (including bandwidth usage policy) under which this service operates.
