At VTemulation.net we aim to contribute back to the emulation community and one way we do this is by offering free quality hosting to non-profit emulator developers. We understand that most free options available to developers are either overbearing with advertisements or require specific licenses to be placed on their projects and that to many developers this is not acceptable. All we ask in exchange for our hosting service is that a small 180x50 pixel “Hosted by VTemulation.net” image which can be customized to fit the design of any site be placed at the bottom of each page.
- Full CPanel access.
- The option to use either yourname.vtemulation.net or your own domain.
- PHP, CGI, and Perl access
- Email (web, POP3, and IMAP) accounts
- Multiple FTP accounts.
- MySQL and PostgreSQL databases.
- Bandwidth and Disk Space to fit projects both large and small.
- Custom Error Pages
- Downloadable Backups
- Responsive Technical Support (Within 24 hours or less)
- News posting privileges on VTemulation.net.
- Emulator Author account status on the VTemulation.net Forums.
- A front-page link to your project on VTemulation.net.
Our requirements for hosting require that the project in question have at least one binary release at the time of application. We allow for any non-profit licensing model (both open and closed-source licenses) to be used on the projects that we host. The only exception to this is commercial emulators which are sold for profit. We are still able to offer hosting commercial projects, however we do require a small monthly fee depending on the size of the project and other factors that are taken into consideration. The last requirement for hosting is that a small 180x50 “Hosted by VTemulation.net” button be placed at the bottom of each page on the site.
All content hosted on our accounts must be consistent with the integrity held by VTemulation.net. Below is a summary of content that is not permitted on our accounts.
Unacceptable Content and Uses:
- Hosting of copyrighted material (ex: ROMs, other programs, etc.)
- Excessive profanity (as a rule, all content should be “PG”)
- Promotion of illegal activities.
- Space provided must ONLY be used for the project.
- Using space and bandwidth for illegal activities.
Any projects that violate our acceptable use policy will be promptly removed without warning.
With all of that said, we look forward to welcoming new projects to the network and if you have any questions or would be interested in hosting, please contact Vincent T. Vantine
