with the amount of outages of this forum in the last few months i have been thinking about getting a server hosted so we can have a place to communicate and do stuff such as a wiki that we can't do here. i have never administered a server before, so i would need someone to step up and help with that part of it.
i was looking at what godaddy.com has to offer and thier package.

• EXCLUSIVE! Metropolis Hosting Community
• FREE! $25 Google® AdWords® Credit
looks like a good deal. i checked and pocket-penguin.com is not taken (please be nice and don't register it to annoy us) i can probably initially chuck out a year's worth of hosting and a few years on domain registeration. the second benifit is i will most likely have enough enough room that i can host other stuff if someone needs some space.
anyone have any comments on this?
