I am going to sound really pathetic, but can anyone of you is willing to host a lotgd version, heavily modded for me? All I need is about 15-20 mb of webspace, ftp and a MySql database (and at least 5gb of bandwith/month).
I'm not goint to compete with you in any way, because my game is offered to romanian users only. In fact it was THE ONLY WORKING romanian lotgd game untill the host moved it's servers. Since then all is working badly (DB errors, PHP errors, the servers are going down due to large ammount of traffic,etc).

I'm writing this at the request of my players who desperately messaged me to get the game back on-line.
Anyone willing to help?

for about $2.95 a month you can get a decent webhost with the bandwidth you are looking for.

I signed up for free hosting at awardspace.com

it's like 5gb transfers/month and plenty of space for LoGD.

which leads me to a question... is 5gb/month enough?  I have only had my site up for a week or two and I'm at 2gb already?

I really only set this up for freinds, but I'd like to have more than 10 people playing eventually?

I think I can move everything to my ISP, they have some like 60 or 80gb/month

can anyone give me some rough stats on what their usage is and how many users they have?

Also, is this gonna go down next month since I'v already installed the bulk of the mods I'm gonna use?

anyhow, awardspace was easy to set up, it took me a day or so to sign up and get my game running.  )Keep in mind, I have never done any of this before, well, not since my old BBS and LoRD and BRE.)

Also, I don't have a credit card so I KNOW I didn'thave to slam one of those in there...

I would give a link for my site, but I'm worried you'll all kill my game, once I get it moved to my ISP, I'll let you all know lol

5gb/month is nothing.

plan with at least 10gb (bare minimum)

Small site running a default game with no mods and minimal players can fare well with 10 GB per month hosting.

However - If you intend on flooding your game with every mod ever written OR have more than 25 'active' players, you need to consider a better hosting solution with at least 25GB per month.

Thanks for all the feedback, I'm looking at alternatives now.  Like I said, I don'treally know much about all of this.  A friend suggested I run it off my home computer.  I guess I can download mysql and all that jazz.  He also recommended using no-ip.com for a free domain name to point to my ip.

wish me luck!

You can setup hosting services on your machine using a package such as EasyPHP (find it in the Links section), but you might want to check whether that's an acceptable use in your ISP's service agreement.  Many ISPs prohibit hosting websites on anything less than a commercial account, and your bandwidth could hit their 'alarm' levels.

You'll also have to pay closer attention to your system's security policies...

no-ip.com works great.

... and if you run it from your home computer... look at your upload speed.

and compare it to what you usually use while on the net... and say 5 people are online on your server at the same time... that will make it *reeeeeal* slow.

Usually this doesn't make much sense due to the very slow speed. A 0.97 would run ok, but the current version of lotgd... not really.

Local installations are usually used as testservers

thanks for the tips and info folks, I really do appreciate it.

I think I might have to run it off my puter, I don't think I'm gonna find a free hosting site that'll give me the amount of traffic that I'll need, especially if more people start using the server...

I'm certainly not going to start paying $50+ a month to play this, maybe we should just start playing on someone else's server...

Of course, it is nice to play around and learn about all of this... it's been years since I've been any sort of sysop, lol

I'll grab the .97 vers though, I guess we're all going to have to start over <frown>

I am using 1and1.com, for $3 a month I get

    * 1 domain name
    * 5 GB web space
    * 500 e-mail accounts
    * 250 GB traffic

This seems to be running no problems Cheesy

So far its been up for 3 weeks and I have used only 3GB Traffic....I only have 25 active users so far but am looking to build I think I have plenty for now...

traffic+space is never a problem.

but server load + ram usage is.

sad but true. =)

best is to keep an eye on dedicated hosting from the start, and go off a webspace until you experience that it's getting slower and/or the host emails you =)

ok sorry to be a pain but where exactly do I check it? or will they just email me when I am a problem and basically then we will have to get onto a dedicated server, bugger, have to start looking into that...
