About Yarsa Host
Yarsa Host is an initiative of Yarsa Labs to offer free web hosting to all Dot NP ccTLD domain names. Apart from simply hosting your website, we help you actually to get online without any fees. Building a simple website for a personal portfolio or a simple online catalog for a small business should not be more challenging than creating a page on a social media.
We provide free web hosting to all eligible websites with a .NP ccTLD domain.
We help individuals who don't know a lot about the web to make the best out of our service.
We help people setting up their websites and provide on-going support to keep their websites running.
Frequently asked questions
- Is it really free?
- Yes, it is. For the time being, we will provide free hosting to all eligible websites. We have no plans to charge for this service.
- Who is it for?
- Our target users are students, small business owners and hobbyists who want to host personal projects and small websites.
- Why is it free?
- It's free because we want to give a helping hand in the efforts of people trying to digitize Nepal. We hope our services will be useful at least a few people.
- How is it free?
- It is free because we are paying the webserver and bandwidth costs and sharing it with our users for free. Web hosting is not a source of our revenue.
- How long will it be free?
- We will provide the service as long as we can cover costs. If we planned to stop providing this service, first we will stop adding new users. Then we will give our users at least a few months to migrate away from us.
- Why don't you provide unlimited hosting?
- Because unlimited hosting is a myth. Even if some web hosting companies claim that they provide unlimited disk space and bandwidth, it is technically impossible. Our offers are generous and are usually enough for small websites.
- Are there any limitations?
- Yes, apart from the disk space and monthly bandwidth limit, there is a limit on the number emails you can send in an hour. If you need to send 1000s of email daily, you can use an external email service.
- Can I host my client's website?
- Yes, you can host any website as long as it has a .NP extension. You you need to host additional domains, let us know. We will add the domains to your account. After that, you can manage multiple domains from your account.
- Do you have any paid plans?
- No, we don't have any paid plans, and we have no plans to introduce any paid plans in the future. We are not a web hosting company. We will continue to offer free web hosting to .NP domains only.
- If I'm not paying, am I the product?
- No, you are not. You're our web hosting customer just like you're a domain name customer of Mercantile Communication. There are not hidden agenda, fees, ads, tracking, or any nasty business logic to monetize from this service.
Yarsa Host is best suited for low-traffic websites with little content. While there is no difference in the quality of service we provide, it's still free and limited service.
