I am looking at starting a very...very small custom hosting operation I am one man so I would prefer to keep the client count down to a minimum less I take on more than I can support, the hosting will discussed and priced on a case by case basis going off the clients needs vs what I can offer, how involved I will be in the setup/support etc.
This will be a service purely for game developers looking to host content related to the team and the game they are building. I will not do any charity work and I do not believe in profit sharing as I have seen I would say...more than 90% of projects that use the profit sharing models never actually make any profits to share. I will offer anything within reason and prices will be negotiable once we have settled on what will be provided I will create a custom package on my WHM panel and depending on how much work will be involved I may require some payment up front but for the most part I will get everything setup before requiring any payment. As long as the service is payed for I will keep everything operational and if you run into a situation where payment cannot be made I will cancel service, however I will package your data up for you and allow you to download it so you do not lose anything.
A small example of what can be provided:
- Hosting for custom game server
- Web hosting with ISPConfig management panel
- Project management hosting (redmine, etc.) along with SVN,Git and other SCM software
- Your own private VMWare Virtual Machine (this will likely be the most expensive however will allow you complete control over your enviroment)
I understand that we live in a scam heavy world today and I am willing to do whatever I need to...within reason of course to prove that I will not scam you out of anything. This will be a client driven business and since I will not be accepting a large number of clients aside from a billing front end this will not be treated as a true business other than in name and client interactions, I.E. I will not have a website for the business of hosting all interactions will be handled via email or an IM client of your choice support requests will be handled through the billing panel preferably but we can negotiate on other means as well.
If you are interested you can either contact me privately through this forum or you can email me at charles.spivey[at]dissolutiongames[dot]com (hurrah spambots I get enough spam email as it is apologies for the email formatting)
