Got a killer Duke site? We can host you!
GameSpy Industries is looking for you! Got a great Duke
Nukem website which you need hosted? We are constantly looking
for new sites to add to our expanding network!
We're looking for top-quality action websites to join our
network and expand our coverage. If you have an already established
site, or even if you don't, drop us a line at hosting@PlanetDuke.com
and talk to us.
Here's the goods you get when you're hosted with us:
Unlimited FTP Space
You'll have virtually unlimited drive space here on the
GameSpy Network, so no matter how big your site grows, we'll
always have the resources you need available to you. We'll
also make sure that your files are available and distributed
to the people who want them. We've got a worldwide file-mirroring
system set up, including partners like CDROM.com, so your
files are always available. All your downloads, too, can
be put up on the mighty FilePlanet!
Mail Accounts & Mailing Lists
Your site can have multiple e-mail addresses on our server,
so you can use @PlanetDuke.com for all of your site-related
correspondence. Special e-mail addresses can also be created
for your news deliveries or different staff members. You
can even start a mailing list for fans of your site. E-mail
via HTML is no problem, either. We even have an easy-to-use
mailing list system that allows for web-based administration.
We've have what the technically savvy call �phat bandwidth�
and we're expanding as we need more. You won't have to worry
about slow load times and, thanks to redundant web servers,
downtime is a thing of the past. Your site should always
be speedy and always be up!
Forums & Chat Support
Hosted sites are free to set up and administer their own
discussion forums - we have the tools to do it. It takes
about 30 seconds to create your own customized chat room
with your logo on it. Easy!
ASP, SQL, CGI, & Perl Support
Complicated sites aren't a problem. Our servers allow this
functionality and our support staff will help you make sure
that your coded pages stay online. You can also take advantage
of existing code; it's very simple to incorporate utilities
FilePlanet, or GameSpyder
into your pages, for instance.
Secure Transaction Servers
If you are interested in selling a commercial product online,
we have secure transaction servers available. Use of this
service must be judged on a case-by-case basis and may not
be applicable, but should the need arise we can do that.
Intranet & Tech Support
Our hosted sites get access to the GameSpy Intranet, which
contains detailed info on everything you need to know to
run your site. If you have any questions about snippets
of code you can use, how to find something, or how to promote
your site, we've got all the answers online. We've also
got an entire tech department who's available to help you
on an individual basis when problems come up.
Promotion and coverage
One of the biggest services that PlanetDuke can offer you
is promotion. Not only can you circulate your own ad banner
throughout the network, but when you launch we'll smack
up a cool Pic of the Day to advertise your arrival, and
cover your site in our news!
Need a poll system? We can provide that! Need forums? Yep,
they're all yours! A custom counter? You got it! Our intranet
is busting with details on the services and features we
provide for our hosted sites!
We don't ask for much, given that we're providing such a great
hosting service. A well-designed site, with frequent updates
and cool content is what we're after! Also, we'd prefer it if
your site didn't tread on anyone's toes copyright-wise.
In exchange for the services above, PlanetDuke only asks
for three basic things: content, commitment, and banners.
We're waiting to hear from you!
We�re interested in gaming content. If it�s good for people
who play games, it�s good for us! If you�re not sure if
a site is appropriate, just ask. We�re interested in game
pages that offer lots to do with specific topics, hardware
help, tools, utilities, patches, whatever gamers can use.
We�re typically not interested in clan sites (unless the
clan is producing something of interest), webrings, or projects
that haven�t begun work yet.
Depending on what your site's about, you might not have
a reason to post something every day. However, we expect
your site to be updated as frequently as necessary, with
enough fresh content to continue to interest readers. Stale
sites will eventually be removed from the site if we can't
contact the site maintainers.
Just place our banner code at the top of every one of your
pages, and you�re set! No pop-up bullcrap! Also, hosted
sites are free to design their own site banner, which can
be placed into the GameSpy Network's banner rotation to
help bring traffic to the site.
Want a verdict on your existing site? Drop our hosting managers
a line! Send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Include your name, e-mail address, and the current URL for
your site. If requested, you may send your site in its entirety
as a .zip file; but please do not do so unless asked. We
rarely accept proposals for sites that don't exist yet -
set up an account at Geocities
or some other provider and start coding pages so that we
have something to look at before dropping us a note.
