Just signed up and now downloading. Worked fine for me.
How do u get 5 keys..?
My only question is how many (If any) CAL's are included?
Looks like they deleted keys/links for Office 2013 Preview, since it was RTM'd...
I signed up and got my 2012 server keys. Do you have to activate with another key if you f.ex. upgrade your mainboard, like windows oem?
No, you just have to have to phone in your info like normal a normal Windows Client. You may get a legit person or you may get the automated machine.
I signed up as an individual also - using same info in my existing MS Partner Network registration (which this does NOT replace - this program is also completely separate from System Builder).
WebsiteSpark is for Web developers (including site admins) primarily - which is why Visual Studio 2012 Professional is included.
Even as an individual, you can qualify - easily and legally - for multiple Microsoft programs, and completely without fakery.
Worked for me, signed up on behalf of my small web dev company (legit)
Cool! Thanks for posting a new way using these OSs for free!
Worked for me thanks again for posting
lol guys this is nothing new.. my website spark expired a couple months ago. idk about the keys as i do not use them anymore
I have installed Windows Server 2012 Standard Evaluation (180 days, 75 days left) and I tried to activate with my own WebsiteSpark key from MS, but it gave me an error:
How to proceed? How am I able to upgrade Evaluation to WebsiteSpark?

Thanks, worked like a charm!
Microsoft WebsiteSpark worked like a charm. I used it a few years back for server 2008.
Been trying to activate my win2012 VL version and I allways get an error, so I downloaded the RTM (Retail version) from WebsiteSpark and took my 5 Key's.
For the inscription, used my hotmail account, and that was it (Responded the question, put 1 employe and put web development / design services for activities).
That was it. After 30 seconds I got access to download windows 2012 std with 5 keys.
All I can say is WOW!
Is there some sort of limitation using these keys?
I mean I can do whatever I want with my 5 key of Windows Server 2012 Standard?
It's completely free?
Just installed a key, Windows Server 2012 Standard activated automatically.
Thank you so much.
OH! I forgot, Merry Christmas...
Isnt there a fee of $100 payable after 3 years?
In for 1, ty op
Mine worked great. I've had Server 2012 up and running for a week now. Runs great. Looks like the server 2008 key might work on a regular install of server 2008. I will post if it does. I've been waiting for a legal Server 2008 key for a long time now. But may not need it cause I'm getting used to server 2012. So happy!!!
I just signed up and mine says pending approval. Then I got an email that said it could take up to 3 business days for approval. Weird.
