Micorsoft Website Spark

Hi experts,

Anybody has had any experience with the Microsoft WebSite Spark program? What is your opinion? For instance, can there be any further unanticipated obligations towards Microsoft at the end of the program?

Thanks and regards.

What my guess is at the end of graduation i.e. 3 years they may offer you a discounted price of the license you are using. 3 years are good enough to create a market presence...


What will happen after three years of participation in WebsiteSpark?

Microsoft intends for WebsiteSpark to inspire success in the Web business. WebsiteSpark provides software for three years of use.

At the end of the three year program, there are two graduation offers available to continue usage of the software (see below). For Web Pros who self host, the WebsiteSpark software use rights expire at the end of Program, but can be renewed through one of the graduation offers. For Web Pros using hosted servers at a Hosting Partner, the WebsiteSpark offer available through the Hosting Partner will expire, but can be renewed through a graduation offer available at that time (the terms and pricing of continuing hosting services are between the Hosting Partner and the Web Pro).

Web Pros who have deployed a site using program software and servers can retain one license of the version of Expression Web available at the end of the 3 year Term.

Microsoft will have two special offers available for WebsiteSpark graduates.

    WebsiteSpark Graduation Package: this will include products equivalent to the WebsiteSpark Program Offering for $999 per year and continued presence in the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN).
    Entry Server Package: this will include products equivalent to Program Hosting Servers for $199 per year per processor and continued presence in the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN).
