The project provides a web hosting service to government entities, including government agencies, financial institutions, government-owned and -controlled corporations, and inter-agency collaborations, programs and projects. It allows government websites to be housed under one roof.

This initiative is supported by the Administrative Order 39, issued by President Benigno Aquino III on 12 July 2013, mandates all line agencies to transfer their Internet hosting requirements to the Government Web Hosting Service (GWHS) for more efficient use of technology and greater protection against hacking and cyber attacks. Local government units and other autonomous bodies of government are exempted from the order but they are encouraged to avail of the web hosting service.

All government agencies are also tasked to strictly follow the Uniform Website Content Policy (UWCP) that gives their websites a common look and feel and the government a corporate identity.
