    OKay I thought there was a special forum for this kind of stuff? I guess osnnbay is close enough.

    As some of you may know I work for a London datacenter and am trying to get a small hosting business going on the side. I'd put that on hold recently as I may have changed jobs. I'm staying put now so plans are back on.

    To this end I've reactivated by billing software license and sorted out a forum :)

    The forum is at http://forum.redmeteor.net/ for interested parties.

    Plans are as follows:

    Shortly I'll be having my uplink to the world upgraded from 10mbit/1mbit to 100mbit/100mbit (in/out).

    During my next days off I shall put a bunch of work in on the website in an attempt to make people want to buy stuff. No content doesn't make for a very compelling sell :p

    I'll be charging in UK Pounds, so all you in the US need to kick whoever let the US Dollar get to almost $2 to £1!

    Packages will start with 500MB Disk space growing to 2GB diskspace over 3 options.

    In terms of data transfer this will start at 50GB/Month and stop at 100GB/Month.

    Prices are £10, £15 and £20/month

    Domain pricing I'll provide as soon as my account with Directi is sorted out :D

    If interested in anything before everything is completed please get in touch. I can do things manually in the mean time.

    I saw your site before and in combination with your forum seems promising. Good luck with it sir.

    I really think that was a miscalculation by cPanel :p

    You're more than welcome to host henypron with me again :) Recent changes to my circumstances mean I will shortly be able to throw some nice big disks at my servers :)

    I could probably sort you one out if you give me more details :)

    Probably A CSS game server
    I would like it to be big. But i can only imagine the "Ping" from an overseas server.

    I get 80ms to New york. After that it starts climbing a ladder. I could source you a US based server, but it would probably be better for you to find a localised gaming specialist yourself :)

    https://www.insomnia365.com/ if you want a game server. That one would be in texas.
