Free hosting service for ManiaLive?

Post by Slaat3 » 22 Jun 2011, 12:47

I used to use 000webhost for my sites and ManiaTools but I can't use it for ManiaLive.
Do you know any free hosting service campatible with ManiaLive?

web hosting services let you save your files but ManiaLive is an application which needs to be executed in order to run.

Something like http://www.ping-kings.com or like [manialink=freezone:servers]freezone:servers[/manialink]. I would like to use plug-ins and to pay coppers.

The first is a server hosting company whereas the second is a manialink where you can register a freezone server. If you want to make a freezone server I suggest you have a look at such companies in order to get a game server where you will be able to run ManiaLive with the freezone plugin.

Quite simply... you never get anything for free.

Free website hosting companies operate on the basis of forcing advertisements onto your site in exchange for the service (no site = cancellation of service -- they aren't stupid). In addition, very few free website providers have php safe-mode disabled (which is required to run any form of script), and those that do tend to change their policies quickly after their service gets abused. Also, you need console access -- something you're sure not to get with a free service.

I would imagine your best option would be to host your server and preferred controller on your own system, at least until you get enough traffic worth considering picking up a paid service. Check out usbtmfserver on tm-forum, and read up on how to install and configure a php controller.

As for paying with coppers... don't be ridiculous. I have a million of the damn things -- let me know when you find any use for them. :lol:

I can rent you a server for coppers if you want.

I agree! I would advise you to not go for a free service! Paid webhosting is relatively cheap already and its way better than the free ones. I would suggest that you look for a dedicated server and get things done with that.
