    * Mmog beta testing

    Hello,

    I am currently on a project creating a FREE to play paintball mmog. We will be offsetting the costs of servers through advertisement. I was wondering if anyone knew of a company that would assist in low costs servers, (possibley free?, of course in return they would receive TONS of publicity). The game is getting closer and closer to an open beta stage.

    Thanks All

    Not every typical mmog-player will be interested in webhosting. And thus it might not benefit the host, which then won't sponsor a server for free.

    Why don't ou go the traditional route, using Google Adsense for instance? Depending on the hits you'll get, you should be able to make enough to pay for the server(s)

    That depends..probably somewhere between 10 cents and 2 bucks per 1000 page hits. Depending on your content and banner integration.

    Unhappy To start

    To start something with atleast 1 ghz of power, and 1 gb of ram. This is of course just for private testing before release. Wont need more than 500 gb of transfer.

    No one seems to be answering emails for quotes today either

    Well if its just for private use, I don't think any host would be interested - even a low specs server like costs easily $40 a month. Thats a lot without getting anything in return...

    But if its just for private use...doesnt an old server connected to a ADSL or cable internet connection do? Great way to use that old P3 500Mhz from the garage one last time
