My clan has two servers, public and private, they are offline for a couple of days for a hardware upgrade, but when they r back ill ket u know ip's. I have full admin of them and they are not **** shared servers. Both are on the same server, but its a dedicated box plugged straight into a major UK ISP's backbone. dunno if you americans will have any lag problems with the trans-atlantic link! but they are nice servers...and since kids have gone back to school, they are often empty.
