We operate an event web site hosting service called EventSmart.com and would love for you to use it. Our basic service is free, and we offer paid upgrades for advanced features such as domain hosting, extra features, and extra storage. Our service is designed to give you as much control and ownership over what goes on your event site as possible and encourage you to express yourself freely. However, be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items listed below appear on your site or get linked to from your site (things like spam, viruses, or hate content).
Some individual Event Smart features may require payment in the future, but they’ll be the minority, and we’ll let you know about them well in advance.
You can check our page on types of sites to get a sense of the types of sites that are welcome on our service (or not!).
