We have secured a Virtual Server Cloud from 1 & 1 Hosting. They are a little more complicated for web hosting than running a web site on a Web Server but on the plus side you can run Game Servers and even VOIP Servers on them. They are very much like rinning a Dedicated Server as we did when we hosted BF2, MOH and COD series First Person Shooters.
We have already created a 32 slot Teamspeak 3 Server and will not be renewing the rental Teamspeak 3 server which should expire within the next week or so.
I have moved another Domain over to it and will be moving the dbdgaming.com domain over within the next few weeks. I have also been thinking about making the way we have been running gaming Portals and our Forum much more simple. Rather than Having a Portal CMS for every game we are active in and one Forum CMS I think I will eliminate the Portal CMSs and go with a Forum CMS that has a built in Portal.
The best one that I have found is SMF Forum. We have used them for years but stopped when we went to EQDKPlus as our Portal CMS because I did not like the way they worked together.
I have put up an example site on our new Server. It is a not permanate but feel free to check it out and play around with some of the features.
You can find it HERE
BTW I have just removed the Rented Teamspeak 3 Server info from our Teamspeak 3 Monitors on this site and replaced it with the TS3 that we are running off of our new sever.
Let me know what you think.
Our old Host TS3.Cloud has been Blacklisted by Teamspeak. What that means is that the Host did not abide by the agreement set forth by Teamspeak and now Teamspeak Clients are no longer able to connect to servers provided by that host.
I am not sure if this is permanent or temporary but in the mean time we have rented another TS3 server with 50 slots and the info can be found on the Teamspeak viewer on this page.
If our old server is made avalible I will let you know.
I have been able to migrate the Member information to the new Forum so there is no need to register again, just use your original Login Information!
You will have to reload your Avatar as that could not be migrated.

We have added Heroes & Generals the MMOFPS to our list of games. The Site for this can be found at the top of this page under Guild and Clan Portals in the Menu. There has also been a section placed in our forum!
