As for the cloud servers, you can use a pre-configured stack like LAMP, or do a stripped Ubuntu build, and have it only cost you around $4/month at min with FULL Control.
    Or dump a ton of money into hosting your own *shrugs* I went that route myself, I've had a "game" server for like 3 years now, finally putting it to good use lol

      Same, I already use my own hardware for my website, why not host my game on it too? (colocated in a datacenter, not at home)

        Exactly, but I do understand, that it's not feasible for everyone. I might be getting some discount codes from the place that hosts mine for Vhosts, if I do, I'll share it here for you guys

        Now I wish I had more money though, soo many sweet goodies on the Marketplace..

          That might work for you. But, I have no server exp.. or Linux. I can call GoDaddy at any time, 24/7 365 and they help me with Anything that I have concerns about. At no extra charge. I would love to run a 4 dollar a month build, but, my 6.95 a month server fits my needs. and give me peace of mind that I have that support 24/7 365.

          I am not saying doing something different from what I am doing is wrong. Nor am I saying there are not other ways to do things. I am just saying, for my skill set. I am very comfortable with what I am doing.

          I'd love to have my web server and game server here at the house. Dynamic IP gave me a TON of troubles though...So, now I just run the game server here at the house and GODaddy's hosts my web site and runs my PHP...

            I have a couple of well suited desktop/server machines that I could use if that were the case, but I'd rather have failover just in case.

              I wanted to share a hosting provider which I found and has been working out for me so far for testing envrionment.
              http://www.cheapwindowsvps.com/

              They have windows plans starting at $10 a month and for a testing environment I couldn't ask for more. I've only been using them for a short period but so far they seem pretty solid. Again, I'm only using this for testing a hobby game so please take this recommendation as such and use your own judgement as to suitability for your testing.

                Update on Advanced Social System:

                I began running into more problems then I was expecting with getting it to work entirely. So I've scrapped it for now and I will build its functionality on top of Codespartans chat system, instead of trying to replace it. I figure this would be more time consuming but less of a headache overall. They are just too different in operation to get them to completely play nice.

                  Sad face, I was hoping it would merge together fairly easy, thanks for the heads up Arixsus. I am playing with terrain at the moment, which can be a pain also.

                    Any chance a number of us would consider banning together, and as a group asking CS about the group donating the money for CS to buy the advanced Soc System. And asking him to intergrate it into a copy of the kit and document how he did it. For a fee of course.


                    Just an idea

                      I love the idea, I imagine CodeSpartan's time is pretty much none existing with Project Genom and all the work needed there, but if we could convince him I would be in, I do have someone right now looking at the kit for me to see if he can migrate them. If that is successful I will definitely let you guys with the kit know what to do. The database stuff is beyond my brains capacity to figure out on doing.

                          Another one worth looking into getting working with the kit, and I plan on it since I own it, is Economy Suite.

                          Edit:
                          Once I get caught up and can get Advanced Social System, if you guys haven't gotten it, I can give it a crack.

                            Economy Suite should be a lot easier to integrate, I think the hardest part of that will be moving the auction house to MySQL, but I haven't really looked at it much since I bought it.

                              Oh yeah, it's cool with me, I am easy peasy. The guy looking at it for me will be awhile, he is tied up right now, so probably 2 weeks or so.

                                I think it's easier to build the systems from the Soc-system new with the infos from the kid, then to try to integrate it. You can compare how it's done in the Soc and then how similiar things work in the mmo-kit. I have come to the point where i think it's not possible to migrate it without so big changes that it doesn't be worth the time. Most of the funktions are not very complicated to build in the existing chat-system and the guild feature can be build in a few days. I have exams in the next future so i can't work that much i want on it at moment but after these i have a plan for that
