We now have a demo Armagetron server at our new US east coast datacenter.
Due to poor performance from the New York datacenter beyond our control, it has been replaced with a new server in Connecticut.
Hope you had a merry Christmas! To start off the new year, we are adding a new site in New York. Just let us know if you prefer this location when you sign up for service!
Today we added support for external service bots. What does this mean for you? It means you can write an in-game service in almost any programming language: C, C++, Perl, PHP, Python, etc... even BASH! As long as it compiles and runs on Debian GNU/Linux, you can have it accessible to players on your server. Feel free to contact me if you want to set it up on your server or would like details on how it works.
Due to the US dollar slowly but surely becoming worthless, and the fact that the Canadian dollar has surpassed the US dollar in value, our US dollar prices have changed. Existing customers can continue paying their old prices for the time being (unless the USD drops significantly more and this becomes impractical).
Yeah, it was a nice idea, but unfortunately isn't possible. Hope you enjoyed April Fools' Day.
We now feature negative pings for all our game server hosting. With this new patented technology, called Predictive Time Displacement, our servers are capable of reducing lag to the point where it is completely non-existent. You can't get this anywhere else, folks, so contact me today for your lag-free game hosting!
For a limited time, we are offering free 1 week trials of our Armagetron hosting. No obligations, but availability is limited so hurry!
I'm a fan of MOOs, but haven't done much with them in quite some time. I remember back when I hosted MOOs how hard it was to find a free host (they really don't even use a lot of resources!), so... Free MOO hosting is available! Let me know about your MOO and see if I'm interested in hosting it ;)
Interested in an Armagetron server located in Austrailia? If you're willing to commit to 3 months of a 32-slot server capped at 10 GB transfer per month, let me know.
We are running a promotion! Get your first month of Armagetron hosting at a reduced rate :)
In an attempt to make things easier for customers located outside the US, we are now looking to accept other international fiat currencies. Due to the regional availability of our hosting services, we are now accepting Canadian dollars and Euros.
Not only do we offer low-ping US game hosting, but we have expanded our offering to Europe as well. You can now request to have your game hosted in either the US or Europe. Existing customers may request a one way transfer to our new Europe server gratis. Future transfers will be subject to a service charge of $1.
In order to meet the costs of running the hosting business, we will need to increase our prices. Some of our rates have been updated, and the others will follow suit over the next month or so.
We are now offering hosting for Freeciv servers. Due to the unknown resource usage, our prices are very high, but we will retroactively reduce our prices once these variables are determined. Please see the Freeciv page for more details.
We are considering offering hosting for other games such as BZFlag. Please let me know if you are interested in hosting for other games.
