Just thought I'd try to put my VPS to good use, I have not hosted for others before, but I think I have a pretty cool setup to offer! Specs below:
VPS hosted with (mt) Media Temple Running CentOS 6.5 4GB RAM / 8 Cores 1TB Bandwidth
What I am offering:
3GB disk space (negotiable), Plesk Panel access, Web Hosting, E-Mail Hosting, phpMyAdmin, FTP, Shell. 30 Days of backups, backups taken nightly, saved on a separate server, FTP access to these is also provided! The host also offers a 99.999% uptime guarantee.
This server is almost completely empty, I do not use it, aside from hosting 1 email address for myself.
I love MUD's, and I love the MUD community, this is my way of giving back. Unfortunately, I am not a coder of any sorts, I have always only been a fan, a gamer, so I cannot offer any assistance in that area, but I can definitely handle the Linux administration side of things.
Feel free to ask any questions or get in touch with me directly.
I know this was posted with the best of intentions in mind, but when someone can pay $5 or less a month to be in complete control of their hosting situation, does this sort of arrangement with a free host even make sense anymore? These services tend to come and go with the wind, only lasting as long as the admin's interest remains.
Granted its cheap to get VPS to set up server and host MUDS, but some people just want the free server space, without having to set up all of that.
I've been running a VPS over at godwars.net for 3 years now, have a few people hosted with me, mainly friends met online on muds… and people who have had no intention to set up their own servers, or be willing to pay. Godwars.net is really just a starting base for any prospective new coder/admin, with little to no resource usage limits, and me being on call to help them with any issues they should have with their mud (which they are unable to fix themselves) I really just wanted to give something back to the MUD community after being around for the past 20 or so years…and to be honest from reading Araxis666 posts here and on TMC he wants to do the same.
BTW Araxis… with Linode i get a pretty decent deal compared to what you have (dependant on what package you are on at your vps)
