Just thought I'd mention that the urls for the sites hosted on GameDev.net are much longer than say, Tripod. Perhaps even Geocities.

My hosted site's url is: http://www.gamedev.net/columns/features/diariesandsites/jharler/default.html

Tell me that's not a pain in the butt to type out! :O

Oh... and if anyone's wondering, I do plan on updating once I get a chance!

That's good to hear! I'm getting tired of typing that out for people so they can get to my site.

I also noticed that Druid lucked out and got a short url! (it's www.gamedev.net/opengl for those who don't know).

FreeServers doesn't do that much advertising, they only puts up one banner, and if you use frames, then it's in a frame across the top of the page. They also will let you run commercial banners. Plus you can get a .8m domain like mine inverse.8m.com which r nice and short.

Hehe, theres always the smaller people like me =) I'm 16, but I'm gettin a network together, and its goin damn well if I do say so myself ^_^
I host sites with subdomains (http://yoursite.neorift.net) but the staff and I vote on it first... if you're interested put your site up somewhere and post the URL, I'll take a look at it.

CGP: What do you need to do...

Well, let us know what you're going to do on your site, and give us at least a basic framework of how it will look. It doesn't have to be fleshed out completely, and you can do that in 2 megs or less. Once you get this fixed up, fire an email off to kevin@gamedev.net and dave@gamedev.net, and we can go from there. We're waiting. ;-)

Well, I'm now hosted by Crosswinds, which is definitely the best of all the free website-hosting services. A real e-mail account (no forwarding), unlimited space, and no advertising at all are the perks. Plus Dave says he's trying to encourage only well-established sites from now on.

I'd like to get my site hosted by game dev. So what do I do? I haven't finished the HTML however, because I've been looking for a host. FreeServers has way too much advertising, and AOL only gives you 2 megs. GeoCities has long URLs and irritating banners.

The site is about a game engine I'm working on, called Fooge (Freeware Object-Oriented Game Engine). I've been working on it since May 20th, so this isn't the kind of thing I'm likely to not follow through with.
