Microsoft Hosting Community

No cost!

The Microsoft Hosting Community is available at no charge to Microsoft partners who are interested in the hosting industry. Gain access to information and marketing resources to help you develop and extend your Microsoft-platform hosting solutions. 



Get started with SPLA

With the Microsoft Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA), there are no up-front costs or Microsoft Volume Licensing commitments. You pay only for what you used in the previous month; you have access to the latest versions of software; and you can sell your services worldwide.

Note that as of October 1, 2013, the requirement to enroll in the Hosting community prior to enrolling in a SPLA agreement with a licensed reseller has been waived.
