I'm not sure if I'm missing something, is this just normal webhosting, if so I'd recommend checking your prices against some of the leaders, your prices aren't exactly competitive.

After looking around, you brought up a good point. I think I can drop those prices a bit. It seems alot of services out there has gotten cheaper since I built that machine.
However, Im not droping down to the $3 and below ranges. Hear me out on that. Just as I heard your side and seen the positives of it to apply with what Im doing:
1st off for the record, Im not looking to make this into a back and forth, "im right you're wrong battle". Nor, am I looking for this to be fuel for flames. In the end Im doing what I feel is best for this machine. So, I encourage any mods to lock this thread if it even starts going in that direction...this is not the place.
2nd, I really did'nt have to advertise this. I just wanted to since I had the extra space and a stable connection. I just thought someone else could make use of it. Its not like you MUST get a commercial service. The free 40MB web and 40MB FTP should be more than enough to handle a small dev team's needs.
Its really nice that the "bigger companies" offer so much for so little. Yet there is always a catch to every sweet deal out there. It usual takes a few months to a year to figure it out. We know the old saying..."you get what you pay for". Im not knocking those companies. I just dont use them myself for my own reasons.
3rd, I never posted on here to say, "Im competing with other hosts out there". This was just an offer to anyone interested in simple straight forward hosting. Nor would I even try until I had the financial backing like them. Im here the same as everyone else. To make games. It was just an offer. If my prices rubbed you or any others the wrong way, Im sorry and I'll look to see how I can make them more flexible where everyone would be happy. Just keep in mind that what works for company "X", works for company "X"...and Im not company "X";)

I will post the new prices up soon. If anyone has any helpful suggestions I can use for the server or even ideal price quotes, I am happy to listen if you PM me. All I ask is dont get upset if I cant use your input.

Thank you
