How much space do you allow?
This varies from site to site, but we should be able to offer more
than enough to meet your needs.
Why don't you offer unlimited
space and bandwidth?
There is no such thing as "unlimited". VGF considers the
terms "unlimited" and "false advertising" to
be synonymous. Every host reaches its limit eventually, even those
who offer "unlimited" services. Otherwise, you'd have
literally no limits, which means you could have, for example, 50GB
of server space if you needed it (no host is going to give you 50GB
of space without charging significant amounts of money for it, and
those amounts will be above and beyond their "unlimited"
charges... hence, the term false advertising, as they promise what
they can't deliver). Moreover, hosts that even attempt to offer
unlimited services often become so bogged down by those services
that they run very slowly, which affects everyone involved negatively.
It's not possible to offer "unlimited" services without
a) reaching a limit and then having to cut off service or increase
the price and/or b) delivering poor service. As a result, you should
be wary when you see the word "unlimited" from a potential
host, as it doesn't exist.
Do you support
Yes, CGI is supported.
Do you support
Not only is it supported, but it is also encouraged. Moreover, unlike
most hosts that support SSI, you won't need to change all your file
extensions and links. If you don't know what SSI is or how to use
it, VGF will help you out.
What types of
DNS services do you offer?
VGF offers you whatever DNS services you need. Whether you need
a subdomain, an updated CNAME record, an updated MX record, or an
aliased site, it's no problem (and, of course, free of charge).
Will my site be
visible without the www?
Yes, your site will be visible with and without the www (www.site.com
What if I don't have a domain?
That is not a problem. We can work with you and get you a better
url if necessary.
Do you support
Do not apply if (no exceptions)...
- You do not already have a site.
- Your site is not video game related.
- You have a large amount of downloads and are not willing to
- Your site does not receive at least 500 visitors per day.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. We're sure you'll find
that VGF's hosting is good (better than many others), and that you'll
find the price ($0) is better than many who offer less. If you do
not include your current website or if your site does not meet the
above criteria, do not expect a reply. Contact
us for more information.
