Unfortinately the web host where the quacker blaster website is hosted has decided to discontinue their "premium" web hosting service. Whats worse is they will continue to allow free accounts to freeload on their resources. What really grinds my gears is for a "one-time" fee they promised "lifetime premium" and now i find out they will discontinue all premium services after only 4 months of me paying. So with out further ranting can anyone please suggest some free web hosting services that aren't advertisement driven or click and build only(Google Sites) cause my entire site is custom build. Thanks for the support of such a great community! :-D

Sincerely,

Primordial Ooze

If you have 14 bucks a month to spend, you could move to Yahoo:

I hardly ever have a problem with them.

I can't afford paid hosting and seeing as my game is open source, it will generate no income for me so basically i will have to pay out of my pocket which i won't do. If you know of a free/one time upgrade service it would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise quacker blaster, a lightgun game in the style of Qwak! or Duck Hunt may never see the light :mad: and i would hate to see that.

Is that really a make-or-break deal?

A lot of us post our homebrews and progress on a little site called AtariAge.

Not anymore, i found a new cheap web hoster and have updated my domain's dns servers accordingly. The site will be down for a few hours be will continue to live on.

@RevEng Yes, i post on that site too, but if you do some searching some games(Duck, Random Terrains games, Spiceware Games) as well of others i do have their own web site. So in a sense it is more of a standing out sort of thing.

Sincerely,
